pa Language Services: online Spanish, Italian and English classes - subtitling and translation services (English>Italian, Spanish>Italian)

Recommended Posts

Let me introduces myself!
 
My name’s Andrea Polverini, I’m Italian, I’m passionate about languages and I’m the founder of pa Language Services. My company offers English, Spanish and Italian online language courses and provides translation and subtitling services (English>Italian, Spanish>Italian).
 
I’ve been for over 15 years an English and Italian language tutor. Thanks to my job, I had the opportunity to live in countries such as Venezuela, the UK and Spain, where I moved in 2004 and where I still reside.
 
During all this time as a professional language teacher, I’ve been so lucky to teach students of all ages, levels and moved by different learning objectives.
I couldn’t fail to observe how a good amount of those learners would eventually quit learning a language because they simply couldn’t fulfil their objectives. Some of them would actually label themselves as “bad at languages”.
 
Well, to cut it short, I strongly believe that learning a language is just like acquiring any other skill in life. It’s a lengthy process, you need to be motivated and put a lot of work into it. But said that, I’m also convinced that we can all learn!
 
As human beings, we’re all different and we learn in different ways. What we need to find out is what works for us.
 
Besides that, we should set some achievable objectives for ourselves. Reaching them will boost our confidence and that’ll push us forward.
 
Finally, we should all just focus on our learning trajectory. Never mind other learners. Even though some people might seem to be picking up a language quickly and effortlessly, that doesn’t mean that you’re not making any progress.
 
Through pa Language Services my mission is to help those who think they can’t learn a language such as English, Spanish or Italian. Through video conferencing lessons, you’ll be able to receive tailored training, scheduled around your busy agenda and from the comfort of your home or office.
 
So in case you believe that you’re not good at languages, that you don’t have enough time to devote to learning or that you reached a stage in life which makes it impossible, just get in touch with me and I’ll do my best to prove you wrong!

      Learning languages can be hard. It's easy to fool yourself into thinking you know the words or phrases since you can pick them from a drop down list or recognize them when reading. It's easy to imagine that you've got the hang of the grammar despite sounding completely illiterate. It can be dull, boring and repetitive. That's where we come in. 
      The Feynman technique is a proven way of improving your memory and understanding of advanced topics. The Feynman technique is at the basis of every study mechanic ingrained into Estudia Espanol~~. Instead of just picking the correct answer from a list, you'll have to fill in the blank and type out full words/expressions. But don't worry! It will be paced properly and you will have time to learn each phrase/expression before being expected to suddenly memorize it. 
      On top of being a more effective system, we strive towards creating a more enjoyable experience as well. The core site will have a few major mechanics that will make it easier and more fun, but aside from the standardized learning options-- we'll include a Spanish studying text-rpg! The game will start out in English and you will be learning Spanish on your journey. Over time, the game will slowly switch to Spanish. In order to navigate dungeons and find your way through quests, you'll need to know specific Spanish vocabulary. The quest will take place in a fantasy version of Mexico with many creatures of Mexican lore making an appearance. You will face off against El Chupacabra, El Sombreron, El Cuco, Acalica, La Llorona, and even Luz Mala. The story will be scary, thought provoking and and exciting. 
      The mechanics will be a blend of JRPG/RPG mechanics, with leveling up, magic, swords, etc, and Spanish skills. In order to cast spells in this universe you will need to have command over the Spanish language. For example, if you cast the spell 'Fireball' it may ask you a question in Spanish about fire-- if you can put in the correct answer, then your fire ball will hit the target. But if you answer wrong-- it will definitely miss. How far can your Spanish skills take you? How much can you learn? How powerful can you become? 
      Aside from the game elements the website will have a lot to teach you about Spanish. There will be lessons covering the main words/phrases/expressions and the grammar of the Spanish language. The lessons will be bite sized enough you can complete them in 10-20 minutes, however, there will be around 100 of them that will teach you the main things you'll need to know about Spanish. 
      The website will also have a standard study mode. It will be similar to using flash cards, but you'll have to type in the correct answers into your keyboard. To keep things balanced, you'll see your words in English and type them in Spanish, but you'll also sometimes see them in Spanish and have to type them in English. There will be fill in the blank sections for sentences and challenges for words-- and some times questions asked in Spanish that you'll have to answer in Spanish! 
      There are some advanced features were looking to develop, but they'll take a lot of time, dedication and servers. I want to set it up so that you can add any words you've learned outside of the website and maintain any words you've learned in the website to a master list. The A.I. will then generate a list of phrases that utilize the words you know and the grammar rules you've studied, so that you can build a more comprehensive phrase list. Rather than just having a few pre-built phrases, we want it to be modular, but accurate to Spanish, so that you can diversify your learning. We also want to integrate the game elements into the study page, and visa versa. Lastly, I really want to set up user accounts for the website/game so that you can save/load your data on any platform, get advanced features, get items for the in-game RPG, and ultimately, face off against other users online in challenges/battles.

      Please, could you recommend me some good textbooks on learning and practising my English vocabulary for either mathematics, physics, pharmacology, or chemistry? (Something like both "Macmillan Vocabulary Practice Series: Geography" and "Oxford English For Careers".)
