LISA | Teacher
Hi everyone, my name is Lisa and I am from Rome. I have been teaching Italian in Bologna for seven years. I am a spontaneous and curious person. I really enjoy listening to other people’s opinions and talking about everything. According to me, the most important part when I am preparing lessons is to make it interesting and include different topics so everyone can participate and most importantly have FUN while learning Italian.
FRANCESCA | Teacher
Dear Italian lovers, I am Francesca, an enthusiastic teacher with Sicilian blood and a world citizen-heart. When I was twenty I left my island to collect experiences all over Europe, especially in Germany, Austria and France, where I studied and worked in the field of Linguistics, Language and Literature Education and Human Rights. The core of my teaching method lies in the students’ motivation, which is the key of a productive learning process. I love communicating in all possible ways, observing humanity, having breakfast and watching the sunset. Listening to Pino Daniele’s music while eating sfincione (a Sicilian kind of pizza) is what I call home.

Hi guys! My name is Giulia. I am from Bologna but I lived in London for ten years and now I have returned to my cool hometown! I am a qualified Cedils teacher of Italian as a second language, I teach to students from all over the world and I love the culture exchange that happens doing this job! I love seeing you achieving your goals when you become able to communicate in Italian. I focus on having fun and using authentic materials in my lessons, tailoring each class to my students needs, interests and personalities! I also worked for many years as a painter for theatre sets in London and I love art, illustration, dance and outdoor sports.
