Our Language Classes

Italian for Beginners

These classes are suitable for real beginners with absolutely no knowledge of Italian. Starting from scratch you can quickly build up your knowledge of Italian and have a basic conversation.
At the end of the course you will be able to introduce yourself and talk briefly about you, talk about your family members, order from a menu, ask for directions!
Classes will start on 28th September 2017 and they will be held at Mycenae House, every Thursday from 20.15 to 21.15

Italian for Improvers

These classes are suitable for learners with some knowledge of Italian and would like to improve their language and conversation skills! Perhaps you have studied Italian at school and you still have some remembrances of it, but do not feel anymore confident to start a conversation! Italian for Improvers will definitely bring your inner knowledge back to life and put you back on track!
Classes will start on 28th September 2017 and they will be held at Mycenae House, every Thursday from 19.00 to 20.00

Our Teachers

Ciao a tutti!!
Thank You for your interest in Italian for Fun and in our Italian classes in Greenwich!
I think it is time to introduce myself and telling you a bit more about what I do and who I am…
I am Italian, originally from Naples, but I have travelled a lot abroad and moved to London in 2012.
I have studied Foreign Languages and Teaching Methodology in Italy and achieved a master degree as teacher of English and Italian as Foreign Languages.
During my university career I have been a tutor for both children and adults – the perfect job to support my studies and practise my didactics skills at the same time.
I have then facilitated classes of Italian Language to International volunteers who needed help in settling in Italy, communicate with locals and deal with the everyday life demands.
More recently I have dipped my toe in the Training and Development world – and facilitated mostly customer services training classes for the corporate world.
Currently I also work as tutor of Italian at the Richmond Adult Community College.

As a teacher I believe that one essential ingredient for learning a language is to create a positive class environment where everyone feels free to express themselves without being embarrassed of making mistakes. Learning a language is a work in progress and the main key to improve is to practise and give it a try!
I have been a language student myself and I still remember the dreadful feeling of stepping into a class where you felt continuously under judgement and pressure. Learning languages is such an enriching activity and cannot be restrained to a bunch of grammar rules and red mistakes marks.
I am very passionate and committed to what I do, I like to inspire my students and ensure they enjoy the time we spend together. I have a very positive and bubbly personality therefore it is very natural to me to establish good relationships and make sure everyone is involved and participate.
This should be white.
My classes are very lively and involve different kinds of activities, suitable for all type of learners.
So please do not hesitate to get in contact, we can have a chat and discuss what your expectations are and if I can help you with that.
Last thing about me – as a proper Italian, I love food and cooking…and if you decide to join one of my courses, I promise I will share some of my “mamma” secret Italian recipes!
