Hi! I'm Valentina and I'm a professional Italian teacher with a great passion for foreign languages (especially Spanish, my favourite one!). I currently live near Rome but I lived in Spain and Argentina: in fact, I really love travelling and discovering new places, cultures and food. I have been teaching Italian to foreigners since 2014 when I got the DITALS level II certification from the University for Foreigners of Siena. My classes are completely focused on the students' needs with an action-oriented approach: they are encouraged to "make with the language" without worrying about mistakes. Grammar is a very important part of the lesson but it is fundamental to learn how to use the language so that the message could be understood. Language and culture are interconnected and that's the reason why I use songs and videos in my classes. Remember: you have to practice a lot if you want to learn a language, and that's why we'll only speak Italian during the lessons.
