Our Teachers

Ciao! My name's Lili!
I was born in the US but raised in Italy for the majority of my life! I had to learn Italian from scratch as a child and learn about the rich traditional culture that makes Italy such a unique country.
Being able to communicate with others and understand the cultural subtext of a language have therefore always been a strong passion of mine!
I started teaching languages in Italy when I was 16 and I would teach anywhere I found people interested enough to learn. Whether it be through linguistic centres, private tutoring, public schools, children associations, you name it! Languages bring people together and help put oneself into perspective through the eyes of another culture. That's why I love teaching. I love people and learning through the students I get to meet. Which brings me to why I became interested in Language for Fun. The program is more focused on the importance and joy of communicating. It's not about how many words you can memorise, it's not about how complex you can get your grammar structures to be, it's about being able to get your message out. Which, I can assure you from experience, is possibly the most important key when learning a new language, and yet, a lot of courses seem to overlook that. Language for Fun promotes the same approach I would try my hardest to bring into my classes back home in Italy.
I look forward to meeting you, and hope to deliver the same love for the Italian language and culture I have, with all the tricks and facts that I learned over the years!
A presto!

Jessica


Non parlo Italiano, mi dispiace! I'm afraid I'm a French speaker, but when I found out that the Greenwich centre would be closing after our teacher headed back to Italy, I was determined to keep the classes going! As well as managing the admin for Italian in Greenwich I run Language for Fun nationwide so bear with me - I aim to reply to all enquiries within 48 working hours. I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone at our first classes. Jessica
