Sobre mí

I am native bilingual Italian / Friulian, studied humanities and used to give Latin private lessons. In college I chose management engineering. I lived in several countries and had to learn myself several foreign languages. Even if for many years my primary job was not teaching languages or translating, I was required to put together my experience as a student and as a language learner to teach German to colleagues and bosses as well as Italian to Germans. I had to develop simultaneous translator's skills as well as technical documents' and texts translation abilities from German and English into Italian. My daughter's birth made me interested in pedagogy and I chose to work more at home and for her, so I got my Montessori diploma, which opened a new vision in the way of teaching and learning. I am appreciated as a language teacher and as a translator, I think because I like them both. In the mean time I am focused on what the student wants and needs to learn, that's the reason why offer a personalised teaching. It's important to me to understand the type of learner requires my service, in order to adjust and personalise the lesson to maximise the result. Given my eclectic background I can focus on several areas of learning. Grammar for beginners and advanced, general vocabulary, technical, business, cooking, travel, art and scientific vocabulary, etymology, regional expressions, conversation are among the areas where I can easily teach. I don't have an accent of a specific region, maybe because I am used to talk several languages I lost it, so from me one hears a correct and balanced Italian. I love Italian poetry and literature, just in case someone wants lessons on masterpieces of Italian literature, which I have studied for many years and keep on reading. Latin is the root of many words in several western languages, not just the Neolatin ones, and most of the terms in medicine and scientific literature come from Latin or Ancient Greek. Knowing the etymology of a word makes it easier to memorise it and in certain studies, like medicine, memorisations of scientific terms is a big part of the work. I can help wit that as well. Italian is such a beautiful language that even if one does not need it for a career advance it's a pleasure to know it, at least a bit of it, eventually to learn a song, enjoy more the travels in Italy, understand an opera or communicate better with Italian friends! Plus Italy is a great place for a work or study experience or to retire, in this case I'd be happy to help become fluent. It would be my pleasure to guide passionate students in understanding and learning Italian!
