Please, before booking, send me a message: we can agree together about a common time! "Vive perpetuamente nell'uomo il bisogno di rendere con le parole facile all'intelletto ed amabile al cuore la verità?" (Ugo Foscolo). BENVENUTI a tutti coloro che vogliono IMPARARE l'ITALIANO come seconda o terza lingua, per studio, per hobby o per lavoro.
My name is Cinzia. I'm a qualified teacher of Italian in public school and I've been doing this professionally for 20+ years. I live in Assisi, in central Italy, but I was born in Tuscany.
***If you want to see my full teacher profile, you should kindly subscribe to my youtube channel.***
I love teaching first of all because I like the subjects of study in themselves.
I graduated in Italian Language and Literature at the University of Perugia, then I achieved two official qualifications for teaching in Middle and High school.
I had a classical education and my approach to teaching ITALIAN is based on the classic model since I have also studied Latin and Ancient Greek.
Knowing the difficulty of these languages, be sure, I can understand the goal you want to reach in Italian, just like I do in the physical class with my students.
This is my imprinting.
Maybe you will look arduous but there are no miraculous ways of learning a second language unless you have a great motivation within you. Then, you will be doing this little magic step by step with an ever-increasing autonomy!
So I would be excited to share with you general conversations about a lot of Italian contents, or about specific topics, using all channels available to us.
MY GENERAL TEACHING APPROACH is based on FOUR fundamental pillars:
1. Listening and comprehension;
2. Speaking and comprehension;
3. Reading and comprehension;
4. Writing and comprehension.
You can choose what level of Italian to reach:
A. Elementary Level: A1 - A2
B. Intermediate level: B1 - B2
3. Advanced level: C1 - C2
LAST BUT NOT LEAST...
Do you like Latin? I can also teach Latin language, literature, grammar.
Would you like to take a look at Ancient Greek? See below...
"Εάν ταις γλώσσαις των ανθρώπων λαλώ και των αγγέλων, αγάπην δε μη έχω, γέγονα χαλκός ηχών ή κύμβαλον αλαλάζον. Και εάν έχω προφητείαν και ειδώ τα μυστήρια πάντα και πάσαν την γνώσιν, και εάν έχω πάσαν την πίστιν, ώστε όρη μεθιστάνειν, αγάπην δε μη έχω, ουδέν ειμί." !
...What does this mean ?! ...https://vimeo.com/85182209
What else to say? I wait and I look forward to hearing from you.
Do not hesitate to contact me and feel free to propose your personalized timetable: I will do everything to meet your needs.

Prima di iscrivermi all'Università ho studiato musica classica per alcuni anni. Sono arrivata quasi al quinto anno di Conservatorio. I studied the classical piano. When I'm working on computer, I hear often a background of good music, classical or modern. I think that music extends our horizons and increases the cognitive potential.
