I am an enthusiastic Italian language teacher who has experience to college students and adults from all over the the world. During my courses, I enjoy creating activities tailored on the students' needs and abilities. At the end of each class students are able to complete a new practical task in Italian, to expand their vocabulary, and to learn more about Italian culture!
Focus on applied linguistics and technology-enhanced learning
