I worked as an English teacher in a primary school in Milan for one year. After moving to the UK, I had the opportunity to work as a language assistant at the University of Birmingham. I organized a “Translation Workshop” from English into Italian for first and second year universitity students. Recently, I started teaching Italian via Skype and this activity is proving to be quite rewarding. I find particularly interesting to follow each student one by one and to plan fully personalised lessons. Having been a language student myself (I have a First Class Honours Master’s Degree in Foreign Languages), I had the opportunity to get in touch with many different teaching methods. Besides, I know that the most powerful incentive for students to learn is curiosity and amusement. I always plan my lessons keeping this in mind.
