Valeria Gardazzo's Full Profile
and method, topics and material are decided with the students during the trial lesson and they depend on students' needs, interests and purposes. Personally, I prefer teaching Italian with the communicative method and concentrating on communicative abilities rather than on grammar rules, but I am always concerned with the needs and individual pecularities of my students. I try to create an informal and friendly contact with my students, since I prefer my lessons to be enjoyable and relaxed. For my Latin and Ancient Greek lessons I prefer a mixed method, with more exercises about grammar and reading comprehension (together with translation). In my opinion, communicative method is not adequate for ancient languages, since no one is going to speak or listen to them. However, my experience in teaching modern languages has provided me many ways to make grammar exercises and grammar theory not so boring as one may expect! :-)
I am an Italian 28-year girl, born near Venice. I'm currently finishing my PhD program in Modern Greek and I work as teacher of Latin, Ancient Greek and Italian to foregneirs. Teaching is the activity I love most, together with translating and... cooking! :-)
