italki teacher since May 11, 2021
My name is Lucas. I am from Argentina, Rosario. Currently I am teaching Latin and some Ancient Greek.
I have a beautiful family, girlfriend and friends. My main interests are psychology (mostly psychoanalysis, which happens to be quite popular in my country), classical litterature and philosophy; I try to connect them all and relate each one to one another; besides that, I would like to say that I am strucked by and I am a big admired of the ancient Greeks, but that seems like a soft expression of the passion. I love music, both current and classical artists; between my favorites are Vivaldi, Lugwig van, Oasis and the wool of the king, Lana del Rey.
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching Latin for two years online, mostly by the Natural Method. The lessons are really practical (the students read, hear Latin and speak, write in Latin.) and tend to gravitate around the main goal: acquire fluency in Latin to read the great classics.
I have taught people from every part of the world and of very different ages. The experience has always been positive.
I often upload content pertinent to Latin to YouTube (either for creating content for students or just because I want to speak about my favorite authors); you may check here: https://www.youtube.com/@lucasantognini
My lessons & teaching style
In classes, we read a Latin textbook and generate a conversation around that. I ask a lot of questions to check comprehension and improve the student's ability to speak and hear. In case there is any doubt, I explain the text mostly in Latin; otherwise in English. I also make comments about some pertinent historical facts about the text or related topics.
Since I believe that is quite important to practice a language to master it, I give homework which includes exercises and writing summaries.
Keep in mind: a lesson must be cancel before 24 hours. Otherwise, in general, the lesson will be charge.

Optimum magistrum linguae latinae eum esse puto. In schora latine colloquens, discere possum ut linguam vivam. Gratias ei ago.

I'm really enjoying and learning so much by discussing different philosophical topics in Latin with Lucas. Today he shared with me some ideas from formal logic. Lucas has helped me learn more Latin, as well as more philosophy! Thank you a million.

Today Lucas and I discussed elections in Argentina in Latin. Our personalities match very well, and we always have a bunch of topics to discuss during lessons. Lucas is great! I couldn't have learned Latin without him, because I love the natural, immersive approach to learning, and he always goes out of his way to help me learn in the way that suits me.

Lucas and I talk about every topic under the sun in Latin--socializing, video games, family life--you name it. I can't imagine another teach who better brings Latin to life. Outstanding.
