I'm a Student from Southtyrol (north of Italy) studying transcultural communication at the University of Graz.
Since I was a child I have been in contact with languages. In Southtyrol we have three official languages: Italian, German (similar to the Austrian dialect) and Ladin. It has always been normal to me hearing this languages in my everyday life. At school I started with Italian and German and when I was 12 years old I began do learn English as well. In Highschool, also Latin was one of my school subjects, that helped me a lot to understand better other languages.
During my school career I spent one entire school year in Florence, where I went to improve my Italian (I grew up with German as mother tongue) I got my first experience to know languages on native level. It became easy for me to switch from one to the other language.
For my first bachelor degree in Applied Cultural Sciences I moved to Klagenfurt in the south of Austria. Here I also started with Spanish and Russian and I spent an Erasmus-semester in Córdoba (Spain) to focus on my Spanish level as well. During this year I also understood that the job of Translator and interpreter was my future and my real passion are languages.
