Specific training in teaching Italian as a foreign language as a second language.
DSA-specific language training (specific learning disorders).
ExperienceI 'm from Brescia, a fascinating city near the Garda Lake and near Milan. I live in Brescia and in Milan, so I can enjoy the natural beauty of Garda Lake ( food, wine, peaceful) and I can enjoy the culture and life in Milan (theaters, culture, fashion, intercultural relationships).
I am a teacher specialized in teaching Italian as a foreign language with long experience and, obviously, I'm italian mother tongue.
I hold lessons for all levels and I can prepare students for CILS certifications or for any other exam in italian.
I started working at a high school in Brescia teaching Italian language and literature.
In the same time, in addition to the chair of letters, I started teaching italian as L2, because I've always been fascinated by multilingualism and multiculturalism. My students came from six, seven or more different countries, they spoke five or six different languages (Urdu, Spanish, Albanian, Wolof, Serbian…).
Since then, I have become more and more fascinated by the cultural and linguistic diversity and I started to study how people acquire a second language in infancy, in early childhood and in adulthood, touching on the stages of bilingual and second language learning, the psychological, sociocultural and linguistic factors influencing second language learning, individual differences and the social and cognitive consequences of bilingualism.
For many years, I have dealt with the integration of immigrant children in Italian schools, and I studied a lot about intercultural pedagogy.
I specialized in intercultural education by attending a course of European Social Fund.
The European Social Fund is the Agency of the European Parliament that deals with education and social policies.
HobbiesI love dogs and horses. I have a very nice border collie and a very bautiful quarter horse!
