Music is one of the basic colours of our lifes. Why just listen to it? Let's play it, create it and express ourselves! - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach flute (piccolo, alto and bass flute as well) up to professional level. Repertoire: from baroque to the latest contemporary music. I also teach recorder or Fife to very young pupils, in order to prepare them for playing the flute.
During our first lessons, I will focus on the basic grammar of the language and on the verbs in order to give you an understanding of Italian. As you improve, I will try to speak to you in Italian as much as possible to expand your vocabulary.
I am a qualified Italian language teacher, with nearly 30 years experience. - Which subject(s) do you teach? General Italian (Beginners to Advanced) Business Italian (all levels) - Tell me about your qualifications. Degree in Modern Foreign Languages (University of Genoa, Italy).
Welcome to my page. Learning a language is an enriching and fun experience. No reason to put it off. Start learning today. I will be here to help you along the journey. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach general Italian mainly to adults and occasionally A' level and GCSE students. - Tell me about your qualifications.
I have been giving private lessons for 8 years and I have trained about 25 students who passed the exams brilliantly (overseas students graduated in Italy). The key to my lessons is to be patient and be funny talking about each topic and in any circumstance.
Ciao! I have taught Italian in Paris for a whole year and Spanish and English for a few months when I was in Italy. I love languages and I always strive to learn new ones - I am currently working on my Polish. I believe that once you start learning a language that will be your oyster to travel through cultures and not only countries.
Since I am a native speaker, I can give Italian lessons for different levels, from basic to advanced. I would prefer to have a lesson English-free, only Italian admitted from the second-third lesson on (depending on the level of the student). I can help with speaking, listening, reading and Italian grammar.
I'm a well qualified and passionate Italian language teacher with over 10 years' experience of private Italian tuition in the UK. - My teaching methods: I teach mainly to adults of any levels. What is really important to me is to deliver the best lesson adapted to the student's needs.
Depending on the degree of knowledge of the language and the needs of the individual student, I will assess the methodology. Generally, if the student is looking for repetition of a class or course he/she is taking, I would follow the textbook guidance.
Ciao! Are you interested in learning Italian in a friendly and approachable way? As a native Italian speaker that as lived in the UK for the last 20 years, I can help. I also make a mean Tiramisu! - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach Italian: basics, conversation, GCSE and A-Level. Translations, proof-reading, and accent coaching. I also teach Drawing and Art classes.
My main method is letting go of the academic and learn the actual language Italians speak everyday on the workplace and in their daily life. Many books I have been dealing with presented a fake language, which foreign students are seldom made fun of. This does apply to every language. In fact, I found this to be the case in my experience with English and Mandarin too.
I privilege a personal approach to language tuition resulting in an enjoyable experience that is relevant to each student's interests. Lessons cover conversation, culture, grammar and daily life situations. Each lesson naturally progresses onto the next. They match ability and consist of a variety of activities to learn new material and reinforce that which has already been taught.
Hi! Ciao! Salut! Hola! 你好! My name is Michela and I come from Rome. I am a 31 years old linguist who has dedicated 2/3 of her life to language learning and teaching. MY BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE: I am a qualified language teacher in the UK secondary schools where I worked for 3 years.

My name is Elisa, I am Italian and moved to London 3 years ago to work in Fashion. I have a Master Degree in Foreign Languages for International Communication and a Diploma in Fashion. I offer personalised programs that include grammar, vocabulary, conversation, writing, culture for all levels with optional focus on Italian for the Fashion Industry.
My lessons are different for each person of course but usually I try to match learn and fun in order to be more productive and very efficiency for a fast and deep learning.
I base my classes on what and how my students feel like would like to learn
I base my classes on conversation. I teach the basics of Italian grammars as the conversation goes on. I will then fix the information learnt with writing and reading lessons. I encourage my students to carry a notebook that we will fill in together as a vocabulary as we go on, with both words and expressions used in the everyday life.
In a nut shell, I am educated to PhD level. I am an intellectual historian. I also hold a master's degree in Translation and another in Environmental Studies. I have a PGCE in MFL and a BA in Italian Studies. I have taught around the world and as such, I have been exposed to different and differing people from all walks of life.
My teaching method is friendly but very effective, you won't feel the stress of learning but you will be satisfied with the results! the lesson structure depends of the personal needs but usually is half exercises and homework and half conversation
With a communicative and student-centered style, I like to tailor my lessons based on my students’ needs and interests, giving a complete overview on all aspects of learning: pronunciation, listening, speaking, reading and writing. I strongly believe that there is no such thing as a “definitive method” to learn a language, and I am sure that anyone can find their own way to do it.
I try to create a tailor-made cours for the student, because everyone has different needs. I prefer teaching the grammar by listening some dialogues or by reading stories. If the lessons is on Skype, I use Google doc, because it allows the student to see in real time what I'm writing and vice-versa.
I am energetic, clean, tidy, respectful with a big smile all the time! I can either make the learning hours fun and playful or simply more serious.
My classes may consist of speaking practice and/or help with homework and grammar revision. During speaking practice sessions we will simulate a conversation suitable to the student's level. I am available for classes for students from level A1 to C2.
I use modern techniques for teaching. Teaching a language is not just about the grammar and I always try to make my students speak as much as possible during my lessons. The final goal is learning to communicate with othe people.
I am a recent graduate from WBS (Westminster Business School) in London. I have a Foreign Languages Diploma and a BA in Business and Management. I give lessons to all ages, both students and adults (to improve their grades or to increase their skills for future career prospects). Lessons are carried out following this structure: grammar, vocabulary, reading and speaking.
I am a 23-years-old Italian girl who is currently living in London. I graduated last July at the University of Milan in Foreign Languages and Literatures, where I studied mainly English, Spanish and German. I've been a Home Tutor for a year in Italy, giving lessons of all subjects to a 10-years-old boy.

Italian mother tongue, very friendly and highly professional, experienced language tutor. Worked for journalists of NEWS International in London and many private students. I normally achieve excellent results.
My teaching methods are based on trying to help people with speaking in Italian while i show them what the words mean. I will start with some basic things of the italian speaking, then with the grammar. At the end of the lesson i will make a dialogue or questions about the things we have learned in the past and in that lesson.

"A man who does not like Italy is always more or less a barbarian." (Félicien Marceau)
Want to learn Italian? Good for you, Italy is a beautiful country and culturally and gastronomically rich.
To speak Italian or any other living language, it is best to immerse yourself in the culture of the country and, if possible to do so, directly in the country itself! But that's not always possible. Fortunately, though, in London, Italian courses are not lacking in number or substance.
The Italian Cultural Institute in London is a major player in learning Italian in London and its suburbs. They are "the official Italian governmental body dedicated to promoting Italian language and culture in England and Wales". They undertake a wide range of activities in order to do so including:
And of course, they also offer top of the notch Italian language courses! Including:
All of the classes available are conducted in Italian and provide training in all basic communication skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) with an extensive study of grammar as well. Their teachers are all university qualified and native speakers and their classrooms are equipped with video and audio equipment, while also giving the possibility of working online. Class sizes are very reasonable at about 6-14 students. A great way to learn Italian quickly and acquire serious language skills in the Latin language.
Also good to know, the institute also offers many other opportunities for those interested in learning Italian or who are already adept:
Italian language teachers are not lacking in the city of London: between universities, private schools, associations, or even clubs, you will always find a teacher ready to help you learn this romantic language. Whether you want to improve your skills or start out from square one, London is full of places where Italian is in the spotlight.
The University College London (UCL) offers 10 week Italian language courses that are open to everyone and will help you to communicate effectively in Italian. They will help you to learn Italian as it's spoken in everyday situations and improve and develop your skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking. The classes are 20 hours overall, 2 hours per week, and are held once a week on weekday evenings from 5-7pm. They are taught at various levels, from complete beginners to advanced learners.
While you are enrolled at the UCL for an evening course, you'll also be able to access the self-access-center where you can look at books, films, documentaries, course videos and audio recordings in a wide variety of languages to really accentuate your learning.
The standard fees for external students are:
one term (10 lessons) - £370
two terms (20 lessons) - £665 (10% discount)
three terms (30 lessons) - £890 (20% discount)
Another university, the University of Arts (UAL) London offers courses in different languages, and for our interests, this would be namely the Italian, Arts and Culture Language Courses. They will "expose you to authentic language through listening and reading activities with an emphasis on functional uses."
The courses are 8 weeks long and explore a number of interesting tops such as architecture, fashion and society, and design, as well as improving you general language and communication skills. Expect to be in class from 6-8.30pm one night a week and to pay £215 per semester including all learning materials.
Here's a list of some of the many other schools and associations available to check out!
International House London - is part of a world organisation, made up of more than 150 independent schools in over 50 countries worldwide offering the same philosophy and teaching approach.
And that's the short list! There are so many other great Italian language learning options in London, and let's check out just one more...!
It is also possible to progress quickly by choosing to use a private tutor. Many platforms like Superprof offer to connect learners and students needing training with qualified tutors in a specialized field.
At Superprof, more than 400 teachers are available in London to teach Italian, be it for mastering Italian in a professional context or to train and help students to improve their skills for an exam, upcoming trip or just for fun!
On average, on the Superprof platform, Italian classes are from £9-£20 per hour, with the lower ranges being offered by choosing a tutor with a little less experience, or with a non-native speaker for example. Thus, we can find rates below 10 € per hour!
Take advantage with Superprof, as the majority of our tutors offer the first course for free, an ideal way to gauge the methodology and personality of the teacher.
By now, hopefully, you've understood that Italian language teaching and learning can take many different forms.
From private organizations to school and associations, intensive courses, evening classes, group lessons and private lessons, there are many options available for each language level and need.
It would make sense for each individual learner to establish their training plan and choose the most appropriate method for their personality and learning objectives. There is no point, for example, in having long-term training in a language school if you just want to get by and have some Italian skills before you go on a few week trips to Sicily or Sardinia. Conversely, if you want to speak Italian fluently, long and/or intensive courses are the best ways to progress quickly!
