I am an Italian native speaker, with a degree in English Linguistics and a passion for learning and teaching languages. I have taught both Italian and English at various levels over seven years (in Italy, England, Sweden, Turkey, and Finland).
My lessons tend to be focused on conversational skills early on rather than strict grammar only (depending on the student's level) and are student-centered.
My aim is to let the student engage with the language from a point of view they can relate to (an interest or work-related topic that they might want to learn more on) and that would make the process of learning a lot more enjoyable and personalized.
Hope to hear from you soon! Ciao!
With a good attitude and constant practicing, quite quickly. No shortage of native speakers here :)
Depending on the desired level, and enthusiasm, a relatively short period - I always encourage students to get extra exercise and monitor their progress by watching subbed movies, or reading in the target language as a great way to add to the lessons themselves.
