The first step to learn a new language is to understand how the language works.
- For beginners, I definitely stat from the logic of the Italian language: basic grammar, communicative functions and Italian civilization.
- For intermediate levels, I work on the use of the acquired competences, adding more vocabulary and including more aspects of the Italian culture and habits;
- For advanced students, I work on their fluency and the use of multiple language registers (formal/informal/slang).
I fluently speak English, French and Spanish, and I have also studied Portuguese and Russian. Knowing foreign languages is definitely a strategic competence, as this helps me work on improving my students' pronunciation of the Italian words.
As I teach kids, teenagers and adults, my lessons include not only activities to learn how to communicate in Italian, but also focus on particular aspects of the Italian culture (habits, traditions, evolution of the language, dialects, trendy topics, society, etc...), through multiple supports: videos, stories, role-play situations, news, podcasts, paintings, virtual tours and other digital tools.
I'm a passionate Italian Language Teacher from the beautiful Amalfi Coast, living in Montreal. I have a Degree in Languages and Communications, and I have worked in both fields for over a decade. I have lived in Spain, France, Australia and Ireland before moving to Canada, where I teach Italian to kids, teenagers and adults.
I absolutely liked our class together. Ilaria is very patient, very calm, and a great methodology. I enjoyed the class a lot, and I recommend Ilaria for learning Italian.
I took a beginner Italian course with Ilaria in the spring of 2021. In just eight weeks, my fellow students and I made incredibly progress in Italian thanks to Ilaria's instruction. While we all started as complete (or near-complete) beginners, by the final class, we were able to hold basic conversations and had developed a solid grasp of aural and written Italian. Ilaria is a patient, enthusiastic and caring teacher who is very receptive to feedback and able to tailor her classes to her students' level. She is skilled at motivating students to participate in class and mixes linguistic teachings with valuable insight into Italian culture. Her passion for the language is contagious and I highly recommend her as an instructor.
Ilaria was my level 1 Italian teacher. She was a wonderful teacher and I strongly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn the basics of Italian or increase their grasp of this beautiful language.
