About Antonella

Ciao a tutti! Look no further to start learning Italian Language than my fun sessions. I was born and raised in Italy. I am an accomplished teacher has over 15 years of experience teaching Italian both privately and publicly, through organized and self managed courses for both College and High school students, as well as adult learners. I have been teaching Italian online for the past four years, using the most advanced tools the Web has to offer. I will help you to build your self-confidence by using Italian as a tool! The approach I use to teaching Italian is based on the Full Immersion Method, based on speaking almost 100% of the time in the target language. I will inspire you to learn new skills, shed your fears and inhibitions and project yourself as a confident and an in-command-winner. I give you a chance to learn and practice your Italian skills in a conducive environment and without the fear of being judged. After listening to many of the students' hopes, desires, and complaints, the sessions have been designed using innovative approach with well-organized and structured study plans. Lectures are complemented with additional learning activities like visuals, reviews, quizzes, games etc. The objective is to encourage you to take small steps to mould your weakness into your strength. A presto!
