Grammar With A Twist (Online) – Thursday evenings

Grammar is tricky and can be an inconsistent thing. Being the backbone of speech and writing, it should, we think, be eminently logical, and make perfect sense, as the human skeleton. But, of course, the skeleton is arbitrary, too. So grammar is.
And what about words that look similar between the two languages but mean a different thing! These words are the wolves in sheep’s clothing of language learning. The false friends!
If you’re struggling with prepositions, false friends, or verbs…this course is for you! You will also have the chance to ask the questions you were always afraid to ask!

Completion of the intermediate 1 (at least) Course is recommended

    Sara was born and raised in the south of Italy, in the Campania region and studied in Naples at Federico II University. She holds a Master Degree in Social and Territorial Policies.

    Sara started to teach Italian at the University of Tennessee as volunteer for adults and young students. After three years, with her husband, they decided to move to the beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia where she teaches Italian in different schools.

    I am very happy to continue to teach and help students who are interested and love the Italian language and culture.

  • Sonia Dal Torto
    Sonia Dal Torto

    I was born in the small region of Molise and then moved to the north of Italy (Emilia-Romagna) at the age of 19. There I obtained my Master’s degree in International Cooperation and Protection of Human Rights. I discovered the passion for teaching while working as Assistant Grant Writer in an NGO in Greece. There I started to teach Italian to young refugees and to hold seminars about human rights in high schools and other non-formal educational settings. Once back in Italy, I continued to teach Italian to migrants and I started to study at Università per Stranieri di Siena.

    Furthermore, as a Grant Writer, I had the chance to promote inclusion and diversity in the education system, thanks to proposals I made in the areas of Youth and Children, Disabled people, Education and Social Services. I proposed strategies for parents, teachers and community workers to confront educational poverty in disadvantaged backgrounds, introducing intercultural teaching practices with the help of cultural-linguistic mediators.

    To me teaching holds so many invaluable meanings: it is turning into success the potential that every student has; it is understanding our communities to build better ones; it is a life-learning process thanks to the engagement with students from different backgrounds; it is falling in love every time with the Italian culture.
