Enjoy the delights of Italy with the benefit of communication Our friendly, professional, qualified and experienced teachers aim to make learning Italian fun. Courses have aims and objectives in place to maximise your learning. Classes are informal and designed to be focussed on encouraging you to speak and communicate in Italian although all four skills will be practised (reading, listening, speaking and writing). Grammar and vocabulary is taught as a natural part of language progression. Learning takes place by a variety of media including; listening to audio excerpts, watching short video clips, reading stories and articles. You will learn grammar through practice exercises, both written and spoken. You are encouraged to practise by speaking in small groups.
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.
