Italian 2 Upper: Module 1.
Luca is from Piemonte, in the north west of Italy. He studied Media and Communications at the University of Turin and moved to London in 2009. In 2014, he spent some time in Delhi, India, where he worked in the library of the Italian Cultural Centre, rediscovered his love for Italian literature and decided to become a language teacher. He retrained the following year, earning a Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults, and has been teaching ever since. He has been teaching Italian at City Lit since 2018. He likes to create a relaxed and fun environment in the classroom, so that all students can participate, learn and have a good time. Here is what some of Luca’s students have said about him: “Luca is informative and knowledgeable and explains everything clearly. He makes the lessons fun and is, above all, patient.” SUE “Luca is an excellent teacher. He is lively and makes learning fun at the same time as being very clear on grammar rules and pronunciation.” SANDIE “We were all nervous about changing to online classes, but Luca has turned Zoom into a really effective place to learn. We laugh a lot, learn new skills (not just Italian) and have become great friends.” CATHERINE
