I am a learner of all things language and literature. My interests range from history to journalism, from blogging to cats, from creative writing to food. In my lessons, I tend to go with the flow - both because I like good conversations and because I believe that an authentic chat is more valuable than any book exercise.
What I offer:
* Italian: books from A1 to B2 provided + authentic materials (new, novels, podcasts, etc) + communicative lesson + guided discovery of grammar points.
* Italian for special purposes: jobs applications, holiday Italian, certifications.
* German: A1-A2 Goethe certificate preparation (I am a qualified examiner with 3+ years experience at the Goethe-Institut.
Teaching A1-A2 levels of the CEFR; Administering and grading exams.
