Paola’s message:

“To me teaching is a vocation which I discovered through direct experience. I started teaching children (dance and languages) and after that, adults. Every time I finish a lesson I feel happy and enriched from the exchange with my students. I believe that learning is a process of discovery and in my lessons I help my students to discover the language and its secrets through direct experience. I lead them to find out the rules by themselves and to discover their own way of learning.”
