DITALS L2 Certified Teacher - Master In Language University IULM - Neapolitan guy, One of the best!
italki teacher since Jan 27, 2022
Hi, I'm Vincenzo Luca Forte. Independent director, videomaker, author and archivist. I graduated in Cultural Heritage Sciences in 2009, and immediately afterwards I obtained a Masters in Management of Creative Processes at Iulm University of Language in Milan. I worked as a creative and i am passionate about minority languages and Neapolitan and southern culture. From 2010 to 2020 I produced and made various documentaries about Naples and Southern Italy.
Me as a Teacher
What I hope, and what I believe should be communicated to students, is not so much the form, albeit important, but the ability that Italian and Neapolitan have in expressing certain contexts, which in many cases are literally untranslatable. Therefore, because of this objective difficulty, I believe that there is a need for a subjective teaching method, more personal, more emotional and more authentic, but still professional and didactic at the same time.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching method, given my professional training as a director and videomaker, will be based a lot on interactions with students through Video, Audio, Songs and articles and news in Italian and Neapolitan. What I hope, and what I believe must be communicated to the students is not so much the form, albeit important, but the ability that Italian and Neapolitan have in expressing certain contexts, which are in many cases untranslatable literally. Therefore, due to this objective difficulty I believe there is need for a subjective, more personal, more emotional and more authentic teaching method, but informational nonetheless.

13 Neapolitan (Napoletano) lessons
For anyone who has ever longed to speak the colorful language of Napuletan’, I beg of you to schedule a lesson immediately with Vincenzo. We have met three times and I cannot thank him enough for my improvements in such a short amount of time. He will teach you how to think, act, and truly be Neapolitan! From hand gestures to facial expressions, and music to poetry, the small nuances and history of “why” and “how” things are done in this ancient culture are truly fascinating. Grazie assaj fratem’, e ce verimm’ a semman che tras!

Vincenzo is patient and skillful. He has a passion for Napoletano and teaching. He helped me with pronunciation and made if fun by incorporating popular songs. With Vincenzo's help, I will enjoy Naples even more and be better able to communicate. with friends.

2 Neapolitan (Napoletano) lessons
Vincenzo was an absolute delight to learn with. His passion for the Neapolitan language is obvious from the very beginning.
We went through pronunciation as well as nuances in regional dialects all the way to historical reasons for why some words are what they are.
He's already shared a bunch of material for me to dive into on my spare time. All of this, within the first trial lesson. Needless to say, I will definitely be booking more time with him.
If you are looking for an authentic and passionate Neapolitan or Italian teacher look no further and book him now!
