Types of Post We Accept:
We generally accept two types of posts: from tutors or teachers of Italian, and students who teach themselves Italian. We accept how-to content, such as practical advice, actionable tips, and useful know-how in a fresh and friendly voice. Here are some ideas:
If you are a student who teaches yourself Italian:
- Anecdotes on how you study Italian, how it’s changed your life or something new you’ve discovered that is really helping you
- How you overcame some challenges in learning Italian by yourself
- Tips and tricks that you use in your Italian studies
If you are an Italian native tutor who teaches Italian 1:1:
- All posts should focus on students who use Italian tutors 1:1 and learn Italian through self study
For example, a problem that students of Italian have, and your tips on fixing it focused towards people who self study
- Bilingual posts with Italian/English translation
What We Won’t Accept:
- Anything that is too promotional.
