Antonio Libertino

Biography

Imagine how you will feel by speaking another language, a different one than yours. Sense all the feelings you can feel. You will listen to yourself uttering different and pleasant sounds. You will see people astounded around you because of this new skill of yours. Will you be excited? Happy? Of course you will be!

I will be excited for you too, because for me it is so rewarding to see people, who couldn't speak a word before, conversing in my own language. That is the real joy for me and I mean it from the heart.

I am Antonio Libertino, born and lived in Tropea, Italy and I share with you a passion for foreign languages and world cultures.

It all begun when I realised that I couldn't communicate with a foreign girl I fell in love with, if I didn't know at least English. What did I do? I took the first cassette course I could find and started learning as fast as I could. I was really motivated to do that. What am I suggesting? That you should get an Italian boyfriend or girlfriend? That wouldn't be a bad idea too, but there are a lot of other ways to learn my language. And I can reveal them to you at your place.

I went on, I learned how to speak English. That love story was over, but it started my passion for foreign languages and cultures. Then the director of an Italian school for foreigners asked me to teach Italian in his school. I asked: "How am I going to do that?". "I'll give you the book", he said. I soon realised it wasn't with just a book that I could teach people...

I wanted to teach people and to let them feel at ease.

During the years, I went on teaching in that school, till I decided to work on my own. The teaching passion brought me to obtain the Ditals certificate Level II which is issued by the University of Siena for Foreigners, and it tests theoretical and practical knowledge of candidates in the fields of teaching Italian to foreigners.

Sometimes it seems that an invisible force guides you to develop your passions and discover tricks and secrets to learn and teach a language.

We can't deny we are living a learning revolution and especially in learning languages: we can't use anymore the teaching methods we used ten years ago. Today we have multimedia computers, internet, cd-roms, skype and learning a new language is so easy!

Are you ready to speak my language?

Knowledge is power and can also be fun if you know how to learn.
