About meHello everyone! My name is Lina. I was born in Miami, Florida and I've lived in Providence, Rhode Island, for many years. I currently live in Italy, where I have resided for the past 5 years. I am a fluent speaker of both English and Italian. I also studied Spanish and French for many years. I have an associate's degree in Foreign Language and have a working knowledge of all of the romance languages. I also have a bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Culinary Arts. My passions are natural medicine, plant-based fashion and nutrition, and sustainable living. I have a special ability to help others learn new languages because I know exactly what one needs to do to become fluent in a foreign language, as I've become fluent in new languages myself using the same skills I will teach you. My teaching style is focused on exposure to the English language to be able to naturally absorb it like a native speaker. I focus a lot on grammar and verb conjugation, but I know from experience that these things alone, while important, are not enough to reach a true level of fluency. I also find it vitally important to incorporate all the senses in learning, that is, reading, writing, and most importantly, listening and speaking. In our first meeting, we will get to know each other and create a personalized learning plan to move forward. :) We will discuss: -What you feel is your current level of knowledge of the English language -What you think you need to focus on first -What topics interest you to learn about in general so we can find texts of interest to read together and I can find interesting films and videos for you to watch on your own time Then, I will build a personal course for you based on using your interests, passions, and needs to create our study material. This is to ensure that our lessons will never be boring, and always focus on exactly what you need to learn to improve your skills and learn to speak like a native! I look forward to meeting you! Lina.
