Certified Italian teachers

We are Silvia and Aligi, the teachers of this Italian course. We are both graduated in Foreign Languages and Literature (English, German, Spanish) and have a long experience in learning and teaching languages. We started this project because we share a great interest not only in teaching languages but also in creating a more inclusive society at 360°. Offering Italian courses to the people who visit and appreciate our beautiful country is our way to welcome other cultures and share our time, values, traditions with them to make this tourist area a more intercultural place where people are free to communicate in a more efficient way.
We both have a Master’s Degree in Translation as well as a long working experience in this field, which is extremely helpful when it comes to a deep reflection on the language structures. Moreover, we have worked in the touristic field for several years before embarking on this new adventure, as we always felt the desire of working and interacting with other people.
Recently we obtained a Certification in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language at the University Ca' Foscari of Venice (CEDILS), created by the most important Italian scholars of foreign language teaching. This studying experience opened yet a new world to us and made us more aware of the approaches, methods and techniques used all over the world to teach our native language.

Last but not least, we share a great passion for the world's languages and everything that surrounds them: discovering different cultures, foreign literature, translation and language integration, communication, learning, teaching and of course sharing time with other people!
