Nice to meet you!
Ciao! My name is Gabriella. I am a qualified Italian Language (LS/L2) teacher. After obtaining CEDILS certification in teaching Italian as a foreign language from the Cà Foscari University in Venice, I began working with several language academies, cultural associations, and online language platforms. This paved the way for the development of my personal method of teaching Italian as a foreign language.
My lessons are tailored to the level and objectives of the students; a targeted language training course developed following the students’ requests. Fun, conversation, motivation and listening are the key elements of the course which make learning Italian easy and exciting.
I live in Italy, in a small town near Salerno, between the Amalfi and Cilento coasts, an enchanting area of Campania; one of the most beautiful and evocative places in the world, ideal for an unforgettable educational holiday experience.
I speak English (International English Language Certification, level C1 of the CEFR, French, Spanish, and some Arabic. I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature, and a Master in Translation. I lived and worked in London for seven years and I have travelled a lot so I really understand how difficult could be when you do not speak the language, and nobody understands you.
Working with students from all over the world on a daily basis, I noticed that everyone has a different approach to foreign languages. Using standard lessons or online resources for everyone is not the best way to teach a new language. We need to create ad hoc material and personalized lessons that make studying easy and fun. Learning a foreign language is extremely subjective and is influenced by age, mother tongue, determination, student experience, and—above all—motivation.
