How long have you been teaching for and how long for Cactus?

I have been teaching for more than 2 years and I have been an Italian teacher in Leeds for Cactus since the beginning of January 2019. I teach Italian in the Cactus centre in Leeds.

How long have you been living in the UK?

I have been living in Leeds for almost one and a half years now.

Where were you born and what is the city famous for?

I was born in Valdagno, a small city near Vicenza (north east of Italy). If you ever go to Valdagno donโ€™t forget to stop by at Bar Carlotto, the birthplace of Bianco Rosso, a very strong liquor drink.

What is your degree and teaching experience?

My Master’s Degree is in Comparative European and Non-European Languages and Literature from University of Verona, Italy. Since I graduated I have been teaching English as a Second Language in Italy, working in different schools, from Primary up to High School level. So I have a lot of experience teaching difference age groups, from children through to adults. When I was still studying at University I started to give private tuition to students, and I really like to work on building their confidence and developing their grammar and pronunciation in the foreign language.

Have you ever worked in another field?

In the University years I worked as an interpreter for different expositions and events in Verona.

How many languages do you speak?

I speak English, German, Spanish and of course, Italian.

Do you have any specific language learning tips?

My language learning tip is: watch movies in the target language, with or without English subtitles. It will help you with your pronunciation and understanding, and itโ€™s fun too!

Iโ€™m looking forward to see you on my course and teach you everything about Italian language and culture.

A presto!!
