LG104 Italian for Beginners with Emanuela Bontempelli

LG104 Italian for Beginners - with Emanuela Bontempelli

Welcome to our Italian class!

Have you ever been in Italy and wanted to talk to someone about who you are, where you are from and what your hobbies are? Have you ever been in an Italian Restaurant or cafè and wanted to make an order? Have you ever been in an Italian city and needed to ask for information? Have you ever met an Italian and wished to speak about your daily life or past experiences, your free time or favourite activities?

If you have, you know how challenging it might be; if you haven’t you may want to learn how to do it!

And this is what our class will be about: you will learn how to communicate in a variety of social situations, within the flavour of the Italian culture and with the support of basic grammatical structures that you will need to communicate.


About Emanuela Bontempelli

Emanuela was born in Milan where she studied Humanities (Modern Literature) at the “Università degli Studi di Milano”. She worked several years In Italy as Human Resources Manager in different international and multinational companies.

In 2015 she was ready for new professional challenges and she embarked on a new career: teaching and promoting the Italian language and culture abroad. Emanuela completed PROMOITALS, a Master Program in “Promoting and teaching Italian language and culture to foreigners” at the “Università degli Studi di Milano” and then she gained the DITALS I - a Certification in teaching Italian as L2 from the “University of Siena” in Italy. 

She have worked as Italian teacher in classes of young adults, as tutor for Executives and in classes dedicated to women within a Charity Association. In August 2018 she moved to Vancouver with her family to attend a Master of Education (MEd) Curriculum & Instruction at Simon Fraser University, that will last two years.

Teaching Italian is her true passion. What she loves is not just to teach the Italian language, but to accompany everybody who is passionate and motivated in a journey throughout the special Italian world of which the language is the most evident expression, albeit not the only one.
