Are you looking for a fun approach to begin with your Italian? Do you want to learn, have a good time, and be able to speak right from day one? Welcome to my world! My name is Gloria, I've been a teacher for over 5 years now, and I have specialized in playful teaching for beginners and false beginners. When working with me, you will be challenged enough to make sure you make progress but you will also have a good time, because you will learn through real conversations and plenty of interactive language games. A time well spent is a time well invested in your learning. ABOUT ME I've been teaching for seven years now, and I have specialised in working with beginners and advanced beginners. I work with adults who feel shy and insecure to speak Italian and take their first steps into the language. I began teachng when I was completing my Master's Degree, and I have never been happier of that decision. My passion for languages led me to study Modern Foreign Languages both at the University of Pavia, my hometown, and the University of Milan. Lately, my passion for teaching led me to get certified as a teacher of Italian through the University for Foreigners of Siena. ME AS A TEACHER I've specialized in playful didactics to support my shiest students and allow them to learn in a more effective and light-hearted way. I always make sure I stay updated with the latest technologies, in order to offer my students the best interactive and engaging experience they can ever have. My smile and positive attitude will always be there to support you any time you feel like giving up. I know, from my own personal experience, that learning a language as an adult can be quite challenging at times. However, I do also believe that everything can be achieved if taken with the right attitude and a gradual approach. MY METHODOLOGY My classes are productive, but relaxed at the same time. You will be encouraged to speak from day one and guided with games and fun activities, to make sure you have a positive and light-hearted learning experience. During our classes, we will work through real-life conversations, and you will get the chance to see how words and grammar are used within specific contexts. Speaking will be at the core of our lessons: you will get the chance to speak from day one and practice in a safe and stress-free environment. You will be actively involved in your learning process and you will be guided to discover the new words and grammar rules in order for you to become more and more independent.
