Ciao! My name is Emanuela, I am an Italian teacher moved to the UK just after having obtained a Masters Degree in Italian Linguistics at the University of Rome Sapienza. Thanks to my academic specialty in the field of the language learning, I developed a great passion for teaching Italian as a second language to any level and age learners. My first direct experience here was assisting the Italian teacher at the University of Southampton conducting lessons to undergraduate students. Since than I have never stopped teaching my language to a wide range of students.
Ciao! I am an Italian native speaker and I moved to the UK after obtaining a MA in Italian Studies at Sapienza University of Rome. I am currently doing a PhD in Italian literature at Royal Holloway – University of London. It is the passion for my language and culture that brought me to choose Italian as my academic field of research. Since my first time at university I have been teaching Italian to students of different ages and levels. I am a passionate teacher, eager to introduce new learners to my beautiful language. Vi aspetto (I am waiting for you!)!
Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Chiara and I do Italian! In the sense that I learn, teach, eat, sleep, breathe Italian! I am CELTA qualified with a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages and I am used to teaching Italian at all levels. Languages were never really a thing for me until I decided to host American students and share our experiences, cultures and traditions. Since then, it’s been a growing passion that has led to me making Italian my business.
