What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
I have been teaching students all over the world via Skype for quite some time now and I would like to extend the opportunity to all members of All Italian Things Club.
This is a very convenient way to take classes as you eliminate travel time, gas money and you can interact with your teacher and learn in the comfort of your home!
You set the time, the date and the frequency provided that the teacher is available.
This is also a great way to recuperate on missed lessons or when not feeling up to traveling to see me personally.
I can guarantee that the lessons work! I am right there in your monitor!
All you need is a computer, of course and Skype downloaded!
You can pay as you go $50 per person per hour or $400 for a series of ten hours prepaid.
These classes are customized and tailored to your specific needs and are treated like private lessons. In other words there is the same flexibility and you don't loose a class if you miss a class provided you give the teacher 24 hr. notice.
If you have a friend or relative that wants to join your class, each additional person pays an additional $25 per hour or $200 for 10 hours prepaid.
Send me a message if you would like to get started!
The intermediate class if for students that have completed the beginners level and are ready to move forward. We will be using the book by Barron's : "Learn Italian the fast & fun way" but I will integrate materials such as worksheets and foto copies of lessons that are not covered in the book. The goal. as usual, is to have you speaking so role playing, games and improve exercises will be part of our lessons. We will be meeting online for this session due to Covid 19
Code for Gotomeeting.com will be given to all that sign up for the class.
Classes are held on Thursdays at 1:00 PM and Saturdays at 10:00 AM.
YOU MAY CHOOSE ONE OF THE TWO DAYS.
We will also talk about cultural aspects of Italy and learn about folklore, traditions, recipes and geography.
The class is ongoing so you can jump in anytime provided you are at level. I can make the determination by speaking to you over the phone for a few minutes. The cost for each session is $180 for six consecutive weeks. Should you miss a class . a $20 credit towards a private class ($40 per hour) will be given to the student and a make up lesson will be arranged.
Once you have reached this point in your language learning adventure, there is no turning back! I must say: You are hooked for life!
Bene, divertiamoci con la bella lingua! A presto!
We are starting a new series of 8 Italian classes on line due to Covid 19 This class is a group class ( minimum 3 students) for beginning level and will be held once a week ( Saturdays) for one hour of grammar + conversation + laughter and fun!. Although grammar is the foundation of any language we stress the conversational aspect and practice Italian speaking. What good is it to know how to read notes, or listen to music if you have an instrument and you can't play it? Language is sound and we want to hear your voice! All materials will be provided but please bring a notebook and pencil for your notes. This is a light class and "molto divertente"(lots of fun). Come alone or bring a friend , grab a "panino" or a cappuccino from the cafe' and let's enjoy an Italian morning together! I assure you will be looking forward to this weekend gathering!! You will learn not only the technique of the language but also aspects of the Italian culture, interesting facts about our traditions, idiomatic expressions, and travel tips.
The cost of this session is $160 for 8 weeks. Should you miss a class for any reason you will have the opportunity to make up the class, provided that we have an ongoing group class, or you will be given a $20 credit towards a private class.For more information don't hesitate to contact me via e-mail or call[masked] Classes are limited to 8 students so sign up quickly! Hope to see you there! A presto! Sandra Sicolo
Buongiorno a tutti!
On October 16 we are starting a series of 10 virtual classes for beginners. The Italian language classes will be 1 hour long and will incorporate audio visual materials as well as written materials for you to practice in between lessons. The classes are structured yet dynamic and fun with a conversational approach. Being a language teacher for over 38 years I bring my experience to the classrooms adjusting my methodology to the needs of the students and tailoring my classes to be most conducive to learning.Because of the Pandemic we will be in a virtual class for this session. The benefits are that you will be safe, logging on in the comfort of your home, you will be able to attend from any place you may be and I will be able to share with my students videos and pictures to make the class interesting. I will have you speaking from the very first class!
To all the attendees an invitation code will be sent to enter the classroom so it is important that you sign up for classes before the start date and make a payment in order to register and riserve your spot!
The cost for 10 classes is $200
Classes are non -refundable but I will give you a credit of $20 ( the cost of each class) for any class missed in the series to be applied to the next series in January 2022 or towards a private class to te scheduled anytime with the teacher.
Once you sign up I will send you instructions on how to make a payment.
Can't wait to meet you all! A presto!
