Ciao! I am Mariagrazia (or Maria) and I come from the beautiful prosecco region, in the North East of Italy. I have now lived in Lichfield for 20 years, which makes it my second home.
After obtaining the Cambridge University Proficiency in English I came to the UK for work experience which led me to job opportunities in Lichfield. I was so lucky to discover such a marvellous place!
I decided to stay a little bit longer; I studied Modern Languages and Social Sciences with the Open University and obtained the London Trinity TESOL. After working in EU-funded projects for 17 years I have decided to share my passion for my own language and culture with whoever has a desire to explore Italy and its enormous cultural heritage!
I look forward to meeting you!
