If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk him in his language, that goes to his heart.
— Nelson Mandela

My Mission

Have you ever been in a classroom and turned to your friend for an explanation of what the teacher just said? Ever notice your friend is able to explain the concept in a much more simple and easy-to-understand way? Well, it's my goal to be that very friend. The only difference is that we're not in the same class and I do most of my explaining on my YouTube channel, Weilà Tom.

This website is an extension of what I do on other platforms like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, where I share information about English and Italian and everything to do with them. Together, we'll explore different areas of these two languages and the language learning process. I'll share tips and tricks that I picked up along the way over the course of the 12+ years that I've been studying Italian, the 7+ years of teaching students of all ages from across the globe, and the knowledge gained by obtaining my TEFL certificate from the University of Toronto.

I like to compare learning a language to starting a new diet. Whether it be a diet to lose weight or just to eat different kinds of food, a diet is something you commit to. It's something you actively practice everyday. The more and more you practice and integrate it into your life, the better you'll get at it. Eventually, it'll become second nature to you and that which was once new and foreign will become normal. So take your time with learning a language, incorporate it into your everyday life, and most of all, have fun!

Always remember to SPREAD THE LOVE!

Tom
