Hi, my name is Chiara. I grew up in a small town near Milan. Languages and culture have always fascinated me. As a result, I spent my university years to hone my teaching and translating skills.

I graduated in Linguistic Sciences for intercultural communication, focusing on English and French. Then, I studied for a postgraduate certificate in Teaching Italian as a foreign language. Finally, I completed my linguistic education with a Master degree in translation studies.

In all these years, I've taught successfully both in public and private schools. And, so far, I've experience with children, teenagers, university students and adults.

Since 2014, I run a blog about Italy, Italian, teaching and translation, and I also provide online Italian lessons, and English to Italian translation services.
