I have been living for a year in Italy, Bologna (2007-2008). I started to learn Italian there. It seemed to be hard. With time, it has been becoming more natural. This is a beautiful language one can learn.

I picked up most of my Italian work for an Italian organization for 7 years. Now it is my past. However, Italian is still my present and I would love to share my knowledge with those who learn Italian.
I will customize the lesson for each student. The most important is trust between a teacher and a student. If you feel I could help you, I would love to help.

Mi piacerebbe di trovare il modo di condividere con gli altri quello che ho imparato io. Grazie! Alla prossima!

About Irina K.

Hello everyone! Welcome everyone to my page!!

I am passionate about learning foreign languages and I really enjoy helping others to learn my native language - Russian. A long time ago I graduated from the Kazakh University of World Languages and International Relations in the beautiful Almaty, Kazakhstan. My major was translation studies, but I would say I love more teaching. I do have experience in teaching languages. I've taught English to Russian speakers for two years and I taught Russian to speakers of different languages for more than four years as a volunteer activity and job too. Now I speak English, Italian, and I learn Spanish.
I believe that learning a language is a creative process.

You are creating a new ability, a new skill that would have to bring something new into your life. With truly learning, you will get there for sure, no matter what aptitude you've got. But not only the results will make you happy, but the process itself is such a joy.
As I am a language learner, I understand the problems one can face learning a new language. I believe I got some solutions. For example, in order to memorize big volumes of language vocabulary, we need to use the power of our mind, make it work for us. We can imagine some eventual situations in very detail where we could use these new words we’ve just learned and pronounce them aloud several times till we feel comfortable and like how we sound in the target language. And our mind is going to restore it since we made it believe that we'll need it in the future :-) And you will see you learn new words much faster, easier and with great fun. That is important!!!
You have to love what you're doing. Love is an essential part of your success!
Love and enjoy the language you learn!

Thank you! I look toward to new meetings!!!

I appreciated the lessons with Irina. She helped me a lot with my English.

She managed to find the closest way for me to start speaking. I'd say her superpower is good knowledge of the subject together with the good awareness of how human mind works. It makes the learning highly effective.

Irina, thank you!

Only language teacher, who has lot of patience to address your queries, appreciate it. She can also touch upon various literary works which would ignite further interest in language learning. Much recommended.
