About

Tim Hays BLANG, BDEVS, MaUPLAN

Tim completed his undergraduate studies at ANU. As an undergraduate he concentrated on Italian and urban studies. He gained an understanding of language structure through the study of Linguistics and Latin, appreciating the importance of grammar in the language learning process. Upon completing his studies, Tim lived in Italy where he solidified his Italian through an exchange at the University of Bologna. During this time, Tim taught students English and Italian. After living in Italy, Tim grew an appreciation for the vibrant public life throughout the Italian cities. This motivated him to pursue his postgraduate studies in urban planning at RMIT.

Tim has previously taught Italian in Melbourne and Canberra and currently works as an urban planner in Sydney. He now teaches the online course of Italian at CCE. In his CCE teaching, Tim believes that grammar is the key to learning any language. He aims to teach students the components of grammar before applying them to Italian. He likes to integrate this with practical every day Italian. He also enjoys teaching about the differences in culture throughout the Italian regions and their similarities to Australia.
