Learn Italian in Italy with Gloria

Let me introduce myself: I’m Gloria, I’m Italian, I’m passionate about books, music, travel and cooking. Since I was little, I dreamed of teaching English. After graduating from high school and discovering a passion for German and Spanish, I graduated in foreign languages ​​at the University of Macerata (English and German). I won an Erasmus Traineeship scholarship in 2018 and had the opportunity to work in “Puntolingua” in Berlin, an experience that made me fall in love with teaching my mother tongue and which encouraged me to obtain the master’s degree from the Università per Stranieri di Perugia in “Teaching Italian as a non-native language” and the “DILS PG level II” certification. Since 2020 I have taught German and English in Italian public schools. I obtained the teaching qualification to teach English in the Italian public school in March 2023. This qualification gave me the opportunity to learn about the most cutting-edge foreign language teaching techniques and to delve deeper into student psychology. I lead tours in my town Ripatransone, in Le Marche Region, and I welcome into my city those who want to come to study and live for a period of time in the heart of the Italian province.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to organize your holiday with an Italian course in Ripatransone.
