Introductory Video (with script)

You Tube Video with subtitles


Hello there,

Thank you for taking the time to watch my video introduction.

My name is Marco. I have been an English teacher for 26 years, since 1990, and for years 5 on Italki, since 2011 .

You can get more detailed information about me on my Italki profile.

I would like to tell you a little bit about my teaching program.

I use a coursebook comprising 7 different levels. I test students at the beginning of the course to determine the best level for them to start on.

When they reach the end of this 7-level series, or sometimes a little bit before, depending on the student’s goals, I prepare them for Cambridge exams such as IELTS, FCE, CAE and in some cases, CPE. I use mainly updated Cambridge and Oxford books.

My program has a strong academic focus on Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking, Grammar, Vocabulary and Pronunciation.

Basically I try to lead students on a journey of gradual and constant language improvement which enables them to achieve very high levels of language proficiency over the years.

I hope to see you on Skype for a lesson!

Thank you once more for your time!
