Welcome to Leidenlanguage!

Here is all information about the language courses I give: I teach Italian, English and Dutch in and around Leiden.

Who am I? Chiara: Italian by birth and Dutch by choice, I am bilingual English and speak fluent French. I have more than twenty years’ experience teaching languages to adults and professionals. Among others, I have taught at the Universities of Turin and Leiden, as well as the Italian Consulate in Amsterdam and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Den Haag. I have a Master’s Degree in foreign literature and a Cambridge CELTA teaching certificate, and I regularly follow courses to keep my teaching up to date.

I have been living in the Netherlands since 2008 – I am based in Leiden with my Dutch husband, our two children and two Italian expat cats.
