Michele Qualified Italian teacher


I am a native and CLTA qualified Italian teacher with two years of experience in both one to one and small group lessons in London. I am currently one of the Italian teacher at Happy Languages Ltd. school where I run classes at all levels up to 14 students per class. Recently, I also followed a didactics research based on the collaborative learning .
I am graduated in History of Art in Italy and I am now attending an on line Master course in teaching Italian language and culture to foreigners (ITALS) with the University of Venice to keep my skills and knowledges constantly updated.
I really enjoy all my classes because I can see how students improve their communication skills and I can say they respond well to my methods.
My teaching style is based on the Communicative Approach and focused on student’s needs. My lessons cover grammar and also cultural aspects because I am convinced that to learn a language you should also understand the real life of that country. That is why my lessons are mostly based on games and communication activities that create a good atmosphere among students and teacher and never make you bored!
I well know that learning a language might be hard and sometimes takes long time, that’s why I am very patient and I proceed gradually, I always make sure my students understand before go through a new topic.
I am very enthusiastic and passionate about my profession and my aim is to give my students a great learning experience.
