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 19 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!

¡Hola!
School exchanges to France and Spain ignited a lifelong passion for learning other languages and cultures, which I continue to share enthusiastically.
A degree in Modern Languages (Spanish and French) and Marketing Studies led to a work placement in Barcelona, which I still feel is my second home. My first career in banking made me realise how much I missed languages so I trained as a teacher in Adult Education in my spare time, teaching Spanish to adults whilst my children were young (and taking Italian GCSE as a hobby!).
When the opportunity arose to work in a Secondary School and then local Primary Schools, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands and worked in lots of different schools with children from 5 – 18.
Having joined Language For Fun as a Tutor I have been so impressed that I have now become a licensee. I love helping people discover the fun side of learning languages! I look forward to meeting you - Sharon x
