LISA | Teacher
Hi everyone. My name is Lisa. I am from Rome and 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.
GIULIA | Teacher
Hi! My name is Giulia, I’m 24 years old and I come from a small village near Padova, in the North of Italy. I love reading, cats and playing my ukulele. I am untidy, undecided and spontaneous, that’s why I have hitchhiked for a while through Europe. I have been living in Bologna for almost three years now, where I graduated in Italian as a Second Language, and where I have been teaching Italian for three years. I love getting in touch with foreign people and I think that the most fulfilling thing about teaching your own language and culture is that you are at the same time giving and receiving, learning new things and opening your mind to different points of view on the world.
KLEIN | Tutor
Hi there! My name is Klein, a 21 yo guy from Cremona, which is famous for violin makers and the composer Stradivari. I'm very easy going, honest and propositive. I love maths, good music, especially electronic and lo fi, cinema but also riding my bike around the city and the country side. I live in Bologna to study physics, because I'm really curious about the universe and how It works, but I'm curious about other people and other cultures, too: that's why I've joined the conversation club!
CHIARA | Tutor
Hi, I'm Chiara. I have been living in Bologna for 4 years as a student. Since last year I decided to partecipate in the weekly conversation with Erasmus students, as I really enjoy to share my culture and my thoughts with people from many different countries. I believe the way we do so, with games and little chats, could be the easiest and most enjoyable way to practice a language. 🙂

DANIEL | Tutor
Hey there! My name is Daniel, when I finished high school, I lived in Berlin for a year to study German, I then moved to Bologna, where I got my bachelor in Drama, Art and Music Studies and then my master’s degree in Theatre and Music Studies. After the university I did a post-graduate course for Dramaturg at the theatre school Iolanda Gazzerro, in Modena. Together with some friends we founded in 2016 the independent theatre group Compagnia Icore where I’ve been working as the group’s director and leading workshops. I love videogames, talking about this I don’t know anything about and travelling.
DONATELLA | Tutor
I'm Donatella and I'm 27 years old. I've been living in Bologna since 2015, here I studied Classic Philology and I graduated in 2018. I love ancient languages especially Greek and Latin, but I also like (a very strange mesh up, I know) contemporary art and comics. Currently I work as teacher and editor for a literary agency where I evaluate inedit manuscript.
ALESSANDRO | Tutor
Hi guys, I’m Alessandro and I’m 26. I enjoyed the Italian Language Conversation three years ago, when I moved to Bologna to pursue my academic studies in Archaeology and Egyptology. In the Conversation Club I found a dynamic, young and innovative way to let people easily learn our language and approach to the daily life in our country staying together and sharing fantastic experiences. Welcome to my second hometown, See you soon Alessandro
