About me

Hola/Bonjour/Ciao! I’m Kate, and after recently graduating with a First in French, Italian and Spanish from the University of Exeter, I’m here to share my love of languages and pass on all the top tips and tricks I have been given over the years. 

I began learning French when I was 4 years old and Spanish at 12. As if two languages were not enough, I picked up a third at University – Italian! As part of my degree course, I studied at the University of Ferrara, Italy, and worked in a lan...

Hola/Bonjour/Ciao! I’m Kate, and after recently graduating with a First in French, Italian and Spanish from the University of Exeter, I’m here to share my love of languages and pass on all the top tips and tricks I have been given over the years. 

I began learning French when I was 4 years old and Spanish at 12. As if two languages were not enough, I picked up a third at University – Italian! As part of my degree course, I studied at the University of Ferrara, Italy, and worked in a language school in Bilbao. Both experiences were fantastic and made me realise how much I enjoy speaking foreign languages and discovering more about different cultures. Living and working abroad, I mixed with local people, developed my fluency and enjoyed their cuisine! From tutoring English in Italy, to au-pairing in Spain and waitressing in France, I am always on the hunt for new opportunities to use my language skills! In my spare time you can find me painting (usually places I have been travelling!), playing the piano or dancing – I can’t resist a Zumba class! After studying languages and using them regularly with people of all ages, I am excited to share my enthusiasm for French, Italian and Spanish, which have become far more than just subjects I once studied at school. So whether you’re struggling with grammar, need to work on your writing skills, or want a confidence boost with speaking or reading, I would love to be able to help through fun and stimulating lessons.

About my sessions

Each language is unique and has its own tricky grammar, pronunciation and spellings! A huge part of understanding a language is learning how to get around these difficulties so that reading, speaking, writing or listening become easier and more enjoyable. After speaking to you and your child, I will create a bespoke structure to prepare for Online Lessons, as each student has different strengths and areas for improvement.

Each language is unique and has its own tricky grammar, pronunciation and spellings! A huge part of understanding a language is learning how to get around these difficulties so that reading, speaking, writing or listening become easier and more enjoyable. After speaking to you and your child, I will create a bespoke structure to prepare for Online Lessons, as each student has different strengths and areas for improvement. I am happy explaining grammar points and structures as many times as necessary, practising with real life example conversations and sentences to really cement your understanding. Memorising is tempting for exams, especially GCSE, however I aim to give my students the confidence to not need to learn by parrot-fashion! Asking questions is very important - students shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help! I strongly encourage this kind of student-led approach, practising tricky structures and speaking as much as possible in the target language. A fantastic way of tracking progress is through writing exercises, using colours to highlight and correct errors. Recording yourself speaking helps to measure improvement in pronunciation and fluency. These are just two methods I have used over the years to help track my own progress, which have helped to show evidence of my improvement and build my confidence. Progress can seem slow when learning languages, so measuring it is a great way to keep motivated and show that all the hard work is paying off!
