In 2012 I completed an MSc in Teaching Italian Language to Adults and I hold a Teacher Training Diploma from DILIT International House. I have been teaching MFL in Poland, Italy, Argentina and UK. My main area of research is the role of the affective filter and its influence in students' fluency in language learning

A Few Personal Comments:
I studied Oboe at the Conservatory in Rome, Italy and I am into music as I am into learning new languages. I have a background in linguistic and philology in Romance and Slavonic languages and I am always up for learning a new one. I speak few of them and at the moment I am studying British Sign Language level 3. During the summer I run workshops around Europe to train new audio visual translators. As well as languages and music, I love travelling, writing and cooking.
