Literature for Advanced Level: Every evening, let's read together (WhatsApp)
Every day you can have a native private tutor on a video-call (WhatsApp or Skype) explaining to you anything of the Italian Literature. I have a Master's Degree on that. We can read together anything (Classics: Dante-Petrarca-Machiavelli etc; Modern: Manzoni-Leopardi-Foscolo-Fogazzaro etc.; Contemporary: Montale-Pirandello-Italo Calvino-Leonardo Sciascia etc.) and of course we discuss, we analyze the writing, the context, the style, the meaning, the legacy...anything. Classes are a mix of reading and conversation; Length: 1 hour and 15 minutes Prices: $25 (1 class will be free for a package of 10 lessons) Leave a comment, share your interests about the Italian Literature. A presto Valentina PS: of course, if you prefer a different time, just let me know :-)

Needs a location

What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning Italian having fun, kind of an HAPPY HOUR where you 'drink' a rich and beautiful culture with an experienced native Tutor (Masters' Degree in Linguistics and Teaching in ITALY).

All skills levels are welcome since there will be 3 groups: Beginners- Intermediate- Advanced (book clubs/conversations)

When possible or requested, we'll go to museums and Italian institutes for exhibitions and events. I start this group to combine language and culture (with readings, speaking, conversations, games) and planning trips to inland Italy, a non-conventional Tourism.

Each member will become an expert, really close to become a real Italian.

Looking forward to exploring il BEL PAESE with real passion, going in depth, teaching the tricks to learn fast, tailoring gatherings and classes on your personal interests (arts, archaeology, history, cinema, opera, literature etc.).” You will love this new adventure!!

Where? Midtown Manhattan. Also in Queens, near Sunnyside or Queensboro Plaza, upon request only.

SCHEDULE: 3 times a week. If you don't see a class on the calendar, ask for a lesson or make a suggestion to involve more people

- NEW! Starting August 2016 classes will be Mainly online!! (1 hour and 15 minutes) You'll stay comfortable at home while speaking Italian to your Private Tutor!!!

I provide with material for each session, I prepare a customized Agenda for each student, but feel free to bring any book of your interest

For the Advanced ones: we will also decide together what Italian book (or just few passages) we will read together and go in depth to (meaning we'll analyze both the text work and the social-economical and political context): DANTE, MACHIAVELLI, MANZONI, LEOPARDI, MORAVIA, ORIANA FALLACI, ITALO CALVINO, SAVIANO etc.

Also.....have you ever dreamed of going to ITALY and visiting a magic place which is inland, rich of culture and tradition and beauty...with a well-educated native that knows your interests and hobbies??

With Authentic Italy your Private Tutor is also your Travel Planner and your adventure pal!! Are you ready for this amazing journey?? I am ;-)

Get involved, start this journey, it might change your life's philosophy and approach. There's a bit of Italy in each of us ;-)

Grazie e a presto.
