I am Federica, I am Italian and I have been teaching for more then 8 years. I have a degree in Educational Sciences, a Master in human rights and international cooperation and I degree to teach Italian as a second language. I was teaching for many years in different countries (in order) in: Italy, Spain, England, Turkey and Colombia. I worked in public schools, private schools, in an Italian culture institute, as a freelance. My students were different subjects : children, adults and professional people. The teacher I become now its only because I met so many students all around the world. I realized we are all similar and, more the cultures/languages, aparently, are different from our own background more we will learn each other. The teacher and person who I am right now it's because all the students around the world I met. Teaching in different countries and learning new languages made me a really empatethic person and really in love with my mother tongue.
In 2017 I started to teach online because I think this is the best method to learn languages and the best method to me to express all my knowledge I know about the Italian language: grammar rules, society, meaning and food importance, explain the Italian thinking way.....!!!
In my opinion learning new languages also means understand the society, the culture, the thinking way of the new language like to be a really Italian citizen...discovering the new language from real live situations.
So, what I can offering to you ?
Of corse the Italian grammar rules but also:
1) speaking and discussing togheter some interesting newsmagazine articles; 2) listening and talking about new and interesting Italian songs (we still have it); 3) discovering and learning the grandmother's recipes; 4) discovering b e a u t i f u l and not turistic places.
We are always learning new things in our life and to do that we just have to TRUST OUR SELF and start/do it !!
