My name is Filippo Bombonato and i am a native Italian speaker. I was born in Italy (Lendinara - RO) in 1980 and i live in Lebanon. I have taught Italian language until last summer at the Lebanese international University (Khiara - Bekaa, Lebanon) and now i occasionally teach Italian at the American Lebanese Language Center (Zahle, Lebanon). I speak English fluently and Arabic (intermediate level). I have improved my linguistic skills attendind private courses and conversing with native Arabic speakers (mainly Moroccans, Lebanese and Egyptians) and native English speakers (mainly Nigerians). Up till now my main occupation is teaching guitar but i can easily teach my native language (Italian) to people who speak Arabic or English. i am convinced that the learner has the right to know why a certain verb or term must be used instead of other ones, thus my motto is "everything can be explained!". I personally don't find effective the method "it's prohibited speaking other languages than the one we are learning!" .On the opposite, my method is appreciated for i am used to compare the language that my students usually speak to the new language they are learning, helping them in finding grammatical differences and resemblances between the two languages. I also consider very important to help my students in creating mental links between the two languages in order to recall the terms just learnt.
