Robert gains much satisfaction and enjoyment from teaching Italian, which he tutors to 'A' Level. He believes that it is the most rewarding language to learn since you get so much out of it for the work you put into it. The sounds are easy for an English person because there are no nasal sounds as in French or gutterals as in German and Spanish. The spelling is phonetic and therefore easy.
Robert has very good quality materials in the Forza! series.
He also teaches Dante's Divine Comedy. This was the first of his five specialist subjects in the BBC's Mastermind Quiz.
