Learning strategies and memory techniques necessary to become fluent in a foreign language are skills that will improve your results and performance in any other subjects.
Becoming fluent in a foreign language will open your mind and increase your confidence. Learning a language is a journey towards personal growth.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a freelance translator for the Italian Society for Law and Literature which is a cross-disciplinary institution created to promote and help the interaction amongst literati (historians and philosophers), and more "in-field" professionals such as lawyers and sociologists involved in comparative research and for Edizioni Giuridiche Simone.
I have helped young students for many years providing private lessons in Italian, French and English for various non-profit organizations in Italy (Fondazione Aniello Raucci Onlus with on-line teaching) and in France (Mairie de Paris and L'Art et l'Ãªtre).
I have first hand experience of children's difficulties in overcoming language problems.
