Culture and Language Full Immersion are the best way to learn. I lived in Italy Venice for over 18 years and that is where I did study and completed my PhD in Languages, history and Literature. I am also taking few college students this December to Italy. Venice, Florence, Rome.
I am very interested in assignments with multilingual families and individuals that need to learn foreign language. I am currently professor at community college and I am looking forward to work during the Summer. My 5 year old is fluent in 4 languages. Italian, Spanish, Chinese, English. Who knows what will be his choice to learn in the future? Are you ready to learn with me?
