About cinzia.lazzarini

❝If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.❞

I have lived in London from 2007 to February 2013. In London I have taught Italian both in schools and online.
I recently moved back home to North of Italy and from my home located near Venice I provide Skype lessons to adult students.

I believe that optimum results can be reached by talking with my students in Italian as much as possible, regardless of whatever level they find themselves in.

I like to work in a non-stressful environment where you can feel comfortable asking questions or expressing doubts. My lessons are built around your specific needs according to the reasons why you want to learn Italian (business, leisure, study) and the aspects of the language you want to focus on more. I will discuss your needs in order to fight all your weaknesses and prepare tailor-made lessons focusing on speaking, listening, reading and writing.

I will find the right material so you can practice at home and I will ensure that we focus on the grammar and linguistic structures in a more interesting way.

I like to teach grammar by using original songs, movies, TV ads and storytelling so that grammar will become embedded into your mind a lot faster. My job is also to make sure that you are given the right exercises and activities and after each lesson I will send you a recap of the topics covered and original Italian material to put these topics in context.

I will create all the activities and material considering your specific level and field of interests (sport, cinema, travels, music etc...) in order to keep you motivated and passionate about learning.
