Teaching Activities

Teaching Interests

I teach Italian language at all levels and I particularly enjoy the challenge of teaching ab initio students. I am the coordinator for first-year language modules in the Department of Italian.
I am also involved in the teaching of extra-curricular evening courses offered by the Department of Italian.
