Flavia D'Angelantonio

Flavia D’Angelantonio grew up in the North of Italy and later studied at the University of Bologna where she obtained her degree in Philosophy and Italian Literature. As she wanted to share her knowledge of the Italian language and culture, she decided to train as a language teacher at City Lit. Flavia believes that knowing languages helps to break down barriers, prejudices, and stereotypes. She also learns a lot from her students and likes the social interaction and mutual exchange of knowledge that takes place with them. Flavia has experience of teaching all levels and has worked for universities, newspapers and private companies. She has also taken part in European language projects. Flavia has a passion for many forms of artistic expression (music, theatre, cinema, etc.) and also for sailing. Having some experience of acting, Flavia finds the teaching experience to be a metaphor of theatre, as the teacher and students are challenged to “perform” in an enjoyable environment and with a sense of humour.

Please note: We reserve the right to change our tutors from those advertised. This happens rarely, but if it does, we are unable to refund fees due to this. Our tutors may have different teaching styles; however we guarantee a consistent quality of teaching in all our courses.
