This episode of Michael Andreula Live is sponsored by "The Last American Guido". I was cut from the movie but it's still awesome, and you should check them out.
The Italians and Spanish, the Chinese and Vietnamese see food as part of a larger, more essential and pleasurable part of daily life. Not as an experience to be collected or bragged about - or as a ritual like filling up a car - but as something else that gives pleasure, like sex or music, or a good nap in the afternoon.
Now, on to our amazing guest, Dana Marchionne!
In 2012 founder Dana Marchionne opened Learn Italian Hoboken with hopes to share her experience in teaching Italian with those who were equally as passionate about learning Italian language and culture.
Shortly after she realized that Italian language was no longer her only mission, she added language classes for children and adults in French, Chinese and Spanish, classes filled quickly!
We recently launched Arabic and we are looking forward to adding additional language programs to our offerings in 2014!
This is one of my video podcast test, and there will be a transcript of this episode for my hearing-impaired friends Hope you enjoy!

Dana's personal story

Common mistakes of "language learners and teachers"

For the past 17 years I've made my career out of designing and teaching group fitness kickboxing classes. Many of my classes consist of up to 100 people, who range in fitness levels from beginner to advanced-- all in the same class. Obviously this exposed some challenges and hurdles that I needed to overcome in order to keep my classes at the highest quality possible.
