School: Nino Martoglio First Grade Secondary School
Functions: English Teacher
I work in a school situated in Belpasso, close to one of the main towns in Sicily, Catania. My school is a secondary school of first grade, with about 800 students aging from 10 to 14 years old. We promote equality in opportunities and we have plans for helping weak students and for raising the good ones. We organize several activities for language acquisitions: we are Trinity centre and our students follow courses to gain the French certification D.E.L.F. and every year we offer a linguistic st
I graduated in Languages and I have three master degrees: Conference Interpreting, teacher of Italian to foreigners and a Trinity DipTesol. My level of English is C2, while I also speak French (C1 - D.A.L.F.) and Spanish too (B2).
I am really interested in teaching and promoting the good practices of language teaching among my fellow collegues and students. I would like to involve more and more students in learning languages and being successful in them.
I have been teaching for nearly 15 years now and, apart from teaching at school, I also prepared students for Trinity Certifications (from grade 2 to grade 5 and ISE foundation - A2) but I also teach as contract lecturer of English Language and Translation at the University of Catania. I worked as interpreter and now I am more focused on translation. I also teach English for Medics at the University.
At the moment I have no projects related to EOL, since I am just moving my first steps within it. I do hope I will get more involved.
Share good practices in language teaching.
