Hello everybody! I am Nicole and I'm a native Italian speaker and an experienced online Italian teacher. I can speak English, Spanish and German fluently and I'm learning Portuguese. I have been learning languages for more than 10 years (and still counting!). I have 2 years of experience as an online teacher. Students describe me as a very talkative and supportive person.
To me teaching here on Verbling is much more than explaining how a grammar rule work or which context you should use a word in, my personal goal is not only to be able to help you learn or improve your target language but also to teach you more about the culture and costumes.
I am very aware about the difficulties language learners might encounter while learning a foreign language, I've been there too! Over the many years of experience as a language learner I learned hacks and tips to memorize vocabulary, learn grammar, and achieve advanced speaking skills, and I'd be pleased to share this knowledge with you.
I offer two types of lessons:
- Italian conversation classes: we will pick a topic and discuss it together, I will create and share a Google Document where you will be able to see all my corrections and get a general correction the last 5 minutes of the lessons where I will point out the aspects of the language you need to work on. Feel free to ask me grammar questions as well.
- Italianlanguage classes: a language class is a more structured lesson where we work on specific grammar topic that you didn’t fully understand. These classes are opened for absolute beginners too, I will prepare a lesson plan tailored on your specific needs.
During class I will also use material such as videos or newspaper articles, in order to stimulate a natural conversation. Conversational lessons are the main type of lessons that I offer, however I offer other kinds of lessons, just give a look at my profile and let me know if you have any questions. I'm here for you!
I have been teaching Italian for more than one year on an international language learning platform called Italki. I’ve had the chance to tailor different types of language classes for each of my students’ needs, from conversational classes to general Italian and exam preparation classes.
