Elisabetta Angeli

I am Italian born and bred and have been living in the UK for more than 25 years.

I teach privately both one-to-one and varying size groups.  I teach Italian to all levels and for all interests, including business.  Being mother tongue, I can really tailor my lesson to your needs and pace.

I have a First Class Honours Degree in English and French and a PGCE in Italian and French.  I have been teaching both to adults and school children for more than 15 years.

If you also like reading, I run a free ‘Circolo di Lettura’ every 5/6 weeks.  We are a lively bunch of enthusiastic readers!  (See news page for further details.)

Please contact her by email for further details.

Vivian also has considerable experience of teaching at business locations in the area.

Sacred Hearts, Charlton Kings with Pina Clarke

Volete rinfrescare la conoscenza della lingua italiana?

Un gruppo informale s'incontra nel pomeriggio di martedì a Sacred Hearts, Charlton Kings.  La nostra professoressa è la Signora Pina Clarke.  Pina viene da Messina in Sicilia, ed insegna italiano a Cheltenham Ladies College.

Non c'è un programma fisso di studi, la conversazione (sempre in italiano) forma la maggior parte della lezione.  Di solito, per prima, ciascuno di noi fa un racconto breve di qualcosa che è avvenuto durante la settimana come un evento, un concerto, un film o una vacanza.  Qualche volta leggiamo un breve brano di letteratura per una discussione nella classe. L'intenzione è che ognuno parli un po' durante la lezione.  Quando sorge un problema di grammatica, Pina rivede l'aspetto grammaticale con noi (per esempio l'uso del congiuntivo).

E possibile partecipare gratuitamente alla prima lezione per vedere se la classe corrisponde alle vostra necessità.
