About me

Hello! My name is Gilly Marchini and I am studying an Integrated Masters in French and Spanish Linguistic Studies at Southampton University. I am about to start my 4th year having lived in Mexico for the past year. Language learning is my passion, but unfortunately due to the current political climate, it is becoming increasingly side-lined and limited to only a few. I truly believe language learning should be accessible to all and am truly passionate about encouraging others to join the poly...

Hello! My name is Gilly Marchini and I am studying an Integrated Masters in French and Spanish Linguistic Studies at Southampton University. I am about to start my 4th year having lived in Mexico for the past year. Language learning is my passion, but unfortunately due to the current political climate, it is becoming increasingly side-lined and limited to only a few. I truly believe language learning should be accessible to all and am truly passionate about encouraging others to join the polyglot community and open their eyes to new cultures, new ideas and new ways of thinking.

Many people tell me “Well I just can’t learn a language”, something I believe to be intrinsically incorrect. Everyone can learn a language: the struggle is keeping going. That is where I wish to help. Through my relaxed one-to-one lessons, I really hope to encourage language learning in younger generations by assuring them that with perseverance and confidence, no language is out of reach and monolingualism may be overcome.

About my sessions

The way in which my classes will be conducted is dependent on the needs and goals of the individual student. Unless there is a specific study programme the student wishes to follow, I hope to cover the four main skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking, with many activities adopting a multi-skilled character.

The way in which my classes will be conducted is dependent on the needs and goals of the individual student. Unless there is a specific study programme the student wishes to follow, I hope to cover the four main skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking, with many activities adopting a multi-skilled character. I think an important technique is the developing and practising of skills alongside each other as opposed to in isolation since, ultimately, speaking with natives or living in a foreign country requires multiple skills to be used simultaneously. I will also be able to provide grammar and vocabulary activities and even cultural sessions alongside. Once a module or section has been completed, I recommend practice tests/exams, such as vocabulary, reading comprehensions or essays, something I feel consolidated my learning at GCSE and A-Level.

What is more, I hope to provide strategies and tips for language learning so that the student may also continue in their own time, such as podcast, film, newspaper and book recommendations and group meet-ups with native speakers. Overall though, I wish for my sessions to be a way to boost and encourage confidence in learning and for the students to feel comfortable in the language.
