My name is Francesco. I am a Bachelor in Modern Languages for Business and Tourism and I am an Italian native speaker. I worked in the sector of non-formal education with kids with a social and economical difficult background.
Furthermore, I give Italian private lessons for high-school and college students, beginner levels (A1).
My teaching style:
I tailor the activities to customer needs. I will insist more on useful phrases and vocabulary since the beginning, so the client can talk since the first lesson. I will focus more on the "real spoken Italian" focusing the attention on slang and common way of saying typical from the Italian language. My objective is to prepare the client to talk about a topic and push him to take a position, arguing and defending his/her own point of view. My lessons will be informal and friendly, avoiding the distance between the teacher and the student so that the client can learn hassle free.
