My mother is Italian, meaning I began to speak the language from a young age. However I only began to learn it properly in secondary school. I believe that it is important to start earlier than this so that students understand the foundations of the language sufficiently in primary school. My teaching method is to divide the lesson into 3 sections: reading, listening and writing. This way each main skill will be covered in each lesson.
I graduated from Reading University last year where I studied both Italian and French. Some of the modules which I completed required teaching in various schools throughout my 4 years. I am also in the process of designing an app focused towards 4-12 years old which teaches Italian, French or Spanish.
- ASSISTANT: Peter Deer and Associates
In order to gain some experience when I was younger, I spent 3 weeks shadowing a manager at Peter Deer and Associates. During this time, I became familiar with one-to-one meetings which provided me with an insight into the importance of being able to speak a foreign language and with opportunities to improve my interpersonal skills.
- UNIVERSITY PLACEMENT: Université Paul Valéry
I spent 6 months attending a university in Montpellier where I was signed onto various courses, in particular translation from French to English. This particularly helped to improve the way I constructed sentences in the target language.
- UNIVERSITY PLACEMENT: Università degli Studi di Padova
After my experience in France, I spent another 6 months studying in northern Italy in a university in Padova as well as working in a bar. During my time in both France and Italy, I enhanced my language skills dramatically by immersing myself in both cultures.
- PROJECT MANAGER: Glurbs
Since graduating from university, I have project managed a new educational app and game aimed at children aged 4-12 years old learning foreign languages. My role is providing me with a variety of opportunities, including concept formulation and specification writing, hiring illustrators and animators to create the designs for the game and most recently developing our marketing campaign.
