Puntolingua introduces itself

Speaking is a natural human attitude, but when it is used as a learning strategy, there are a few things to keep in mind, for example to invite the student to express their opinions directly in the target language, instead of using the time available to talk “about the target language”. It seems easy, but to do this you need to know various teaching methods. Unfortunately, today we have the impression that teaching a language with new technologies is very easy. Everyone at home has a computer and a webcam, but technology, even if very useful, is not enough.

By Puntolingua’s Italian language courses (both in groups and in individual lessons) the student is guided through his individual learning process and to do this the teacher must have skills in the field of foreign language learning. For this reason, by Puntolingua we organize a training course in language teaching and and the teachers who have been working with us for the longest time have a certification in teaching Italian to foreigners. Our teachers live in Berlin or they only lived in Berlin for a certain period during which they followed our training and then returned to Italy.
