About FrancescoHi, my name is Francesco and I'd love to be your Italian teacher. I am a medical student and I am a native Italian speaker. I've been teaching Italian online since the age of 16, which means that I started everything more than four years ago. I was born in Sicily in 1993 but I moved to Calabria in 1994. I've been living in Calabria since then. Even though I am not a professional teacher I think I am a pretty good teacher and I firmly believe that my Italian knowledge is quite good. I mean, every Italian knows how to speak Italian, but when we talk about grammar things change a little bit. I take my job very seriously so I will tell you right now that almost everything depends on you and that I would like to teach Italian only to people who already know how to partially speak it. I just don't think I am the best teacher in the world when we talk about learning Italian from scratch. Personally I’ve been teaching Italian to English, American, Canadian, and Australian people for over 4 and a half years now (June 2014). That means that even my English is pretty good and that if you don’t understand an Italian word or sentence there are good chances I’ll be able to translate that into English. Efficiency is just a too important factor. I am an honest person, this is why I am telling you this stuff; because I only want to do what I think I am really good at. As for the lessons, I like to use Skype. Keep in mind that I don't have a webcam for now and that I only have a mike. Needless to say if you have any question about Italian you can always leave me a message on Skype and I will answer your questions as soon as I can. I think I told you everything I had to say, but if you have any question feel free to contact me.
