John HollingworthTeacher

I am a committed teacher of modern foreign languages with many years of experience of teaching French and German in schools and colleges to all levels of pupils and students. Recently I completed a second degree in Italian and Spanish at Leicester University, and I have been teaching Italian for the past three years in addition to the other languages. I believe in a communicative approach to language teaching, based principally on listening and speaking. In accordance with this ‘direct’ method of language learning, I largely use my own resources, reinforcing them with more traditional exercises and practice of grammatical structures.

Naturally the methodology I employ will always be adapted to the needs and desires of the individual student.

Enzo CarlettiTeacher

I’m an Italian native speaker with a degree in modern languages. I’ve been teaching Italian at all levels with Leicestershire County Council and Leicester City Council for many years.I enjoy teaching my language to others and use a variety of methods according to the learners and their needs. I also like to incorporate aspects of Italian culture and way of life into my classes.
