Ciao, my name is Desi Alessandrini, I was born in Trento and I teach italian as a foreign language since 1988. You can find some reviews of my work here and here. I have a Laurea in Lingua e Cultura Italiana per Stranieri and the DILS-PG, certificate of competence in teaching italian as a foreign language from Università di Perugia.
Now I live in Cagliari, Sardegna, I run the blog Corso Brancaleone and I give online lessons. I have also studied Philosophy and Photography. I love history, art history, literature, comics, cinema, themes that are an essential part of my courses.
Since the first lesson you will be *using* the italian language and you will get in touch with authentic material even if you never studied it before. I work with all levels and learning purposes, like travel, studies, work and (inter)cultural growth. We can use a textbook and/or material specifically tailored for your needs.
To schedule a demo lesson or if you have any questions, check my profile on Italki https://www.italki.com/desiales. You can write to me in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French.
