Hi, I'm Federico Cannelloni. I was born in Italy but I live now in Belgium (with my lovely wife and my little son) where I teach Italian in several schools, mostly with adults. I'm doing this job already five years now. I gained a PhD in medieval history at the universities of Padova and Leuven.
I like very much a lively lesson and therefore I try to let my students speaks so much as it is possible: grammar is important but I believe that it is better to discovery it trough speaking or exciting exercises. Since I'm a full blood Italian I like also to include in my lessons some references to the country: they could vary from eat habits to the political situation. I also try to use authentic material in listening and reading exercises. I love engaged students. I'm able to teach Italian to children, adolescents and adults
I also believe that it is better to speak Italian from the first lesson on, even in the lowest levels. So, vuoi parlare italiano con me?
