I have a degree in Linguistics and Italian Literature from the University of Pavia, a Diploma in Translation from English to Italian and CELTA. I used to work as an Elementary Teacher and what I bring with me from that experience is being patient and making my lessons playful whenever possible. I have taught Italian as a Foreign Language as a free lance in Italy and in other Countries. I have lived abroad extensively and studied other languages, so I tend to build lessons based on communication and real life situations. I am always happy to explain and show how Italians live and think, which I believe is part of learning a language.
