Chiara Bodini studied foreign languages and literature and has a Master’s in Italian as a second language acquisition, from Siena University. She also completed an official certification DITALS, the second level in teaching Italian as a second language.
Chiara teaches students of all levels, from the absolute beginner to the advanced. She loves meeting new students and structuring the lessons based on their interests, whether these interests relate to music, theater, food, traveling, cinema, Italian design or anything else.
In her lessons, she will focus on communication, interaction and skill development of talking, listening, reading and writing. During her lessons, she will only speak Italian, but she is willing to use some English for those students starting out.
Chiara loves being an Italian language teacher as she gets to impart her knowledge of Italian and Italy, and in exchange gets to learn about a whole variety of cultures from her students.
