I'm Ermy Pedata and I’m dedicated to help you to become fluent in Italian so you can enjoy your next trip to Italy and have a real taste of the Italian lifestyle.
I believe that learning a new language can lead you to amazing experiences that can potentially change your life (definitely true for me!). As an artist at heart, who spent the first 25 years of her life among colours, drawings cartoons and graphic novels, I learned a new language not just for the sake of it, but because I wanted to share my art with the world, connect with new people and travel! My hunch is that you too want to learn a language because youve got some compelling reason behind it. A goal. A vision. A dream that doesnt leave you alone (you know which one!). Or maybe youre just a lifelong learner, like me. In fact, while learning English and working as an artist, I soon got the language bug. So, I decided to keep learning other languages and went to university to do a language degree where I also learned Spanish...and then French. Now, my next languages on the list are Greek and Japanese. What about you? If you are learning either Italian or Spanish I can definitely help you. Beneath the goofy personality and the funny foreign accent, Ive got some wicked qualifications and accomplishments under my belt that make me the perfect coach to help you to learn the language you love. I graduated from the Italian university "lOrientale" (in my hometown Naples in Italy) with a first class honours degree in Modern Languages, specialising in Spanish and English. In 2011, I completed the Master in Translation, Writing and Cultural Difference at the University of Warwick in Coventry. In 2013, I got my Postgraduate Certificate in Education, PGCE (M), from the University of East Anglia. While studying for the admission to my teaching qualification, I also learned French, spent a few weeks travelling in France and stayed for two weeks in the cute city of Rouen. After having taught languages in a variety of schools and organisations and feeling unsatisfied with their teaching approach, I decided that it was time to take my personal take on teaching languages by bringing in my multitude of passions that include art (who do you think designed every single graphic element of my website? ) and especially coaching. In 2018, while looking for ways to help my students to learn more effectively, I became a certified Neurolanguage coach (certified by Efficient Language Coaching and accredited by International Coaching Federation). However, the truth is that what qualifies me the most to teach you is that Ive been where you are right now in your learning journey and got past it. So, take my hand and lets go together!
In addition to learning languages, I love spirituality, personal development, dancing, drawing, performing and all art- related things. In the past I used to work as freelance cartoonist and illustrator! 🙂
I specialise in helping English and Spanish speakers to learn Italian. In the past,I also coached other languages I am fluent such as Spanish, English (up to advanced) and French (up to intermediate level).I am also very good at making people laugh when they least expect it!
