MyTata Inglese is an association of native English-speaking young women and men whose main goal is to share their culture with children and adults alike, teaching English through fun experiences and labs instead of traditional language lessons. Both private labs at home and collective labs have been designed and structured to offer a comprehensive experience and language program that goes beyond just grammar and vocabulary. By having fun, celebrating holidays and birthdays, playing, reading, cooking, and thinking in English, children, teens, and adults quickly feel more confident and comfortable when communicating in this language that they have often already studied. Their knowledge is just waiting to be unleashed.
The members of our association share certain values that are at the core of our philosophy, themes, and projects at MyTata Inglese. These values are reflected in both the labs and experiences, as well as in the association's initiatives. For example, facilitating the integration of different cultures and mutual understanding of traditions, language, and history has always been a priority for us. That is why in 2020, we launched the MyTata MyOrigins project in partnership with the Anelli Mancanti Association, which aims to help improve the Italian language skills of both our native English-speaking teachers and non-native Italian-speaking children who need assistance in learning or perfecting the language.
Preserving our planet is also a priority in terms of the values we uphold and transmit to our members and the children we work with. Recycling, resource conservation, and respect for all beings, nature, and materials are reflected in every theme, game, and lab we offer. We gladly organize and participate in external events that promote the use of renewable energies and respect for the environment.
Regarding education, we consider it our responsibility to contribute to every individual’s acquisition of general knowledge. That's why we don't just teach English while entertaining both children and adults. We also tackle challenging topics and contemporary thought for older participants and introduce younger participants to essential aspects of our civilization, including art, history, and literature.
The customization of our labs as well as the importance we give to the personality of each association member enables us to be flexible in providing what each individual needs. We are proud of our collective labs, which are the heart of our organization's offerings and allow us to maintain a connection with families, building our community around parties, games, and celebrations of all kinds. However, we also consider the work of our native English-speaking teachers in your homes to be fundamental, as they often play an important role in the education of both children and teens. As for teens, they are the age group that solidifies our community. As role models for the younger members and often friends of the teachers, the teens are the most active members of our community. For those who are highly dedicated, we invite you to contact us to design a full immersion program where you will learn the language at an accelerated pace by being involved in the planning, organization, and execution of labs and events, assisting the teachers with whom you will speak exclusively in English.
Our community is therefore made up of children, young women and men, parents, and teachers who interact in an international setting. They share common priorities such as education quality, the importance of languages, and respect for diverse cultures, individuals, and their environment (our planet). Twice a year, the association organizes a free event where everyone can meet, discuss, have fun, and play together in English. During this event, families and teachers can also arrange potential collaborations directly, even independently of the association itself.
