Bio
I am 24 years old, italian mothertongue.
I had my first contact with languages when I was 6 years old at school, since I was born in the italian province of Bolzano, where both italian and german languages are spoken. My lessons where half in italian and half in german, and the german teacher spoke with us little children just in her own language from the first day. In 5 years of elementary school, though I had never had any lesson of german grammar, I was perfectly able to express myself in correct and fluent german, and often I was asked by the teacher to translate lessons in italian to new entry students.

I started studying english when I was 11 years old. I can not deny it was hard for me to study a language from books and with italian speaking teachers. However, many trips abroad, the first in England, then Poland, Russia and many others, then partecipation in international volunteering projects, allowded me improving it. Never the less, watching films, reading books have been helping me to increase my language skills.

My will of learning russian seriuosly came out rather suddenly: when I was 16 I heard of the possibility to spend one year abroad and learn a language. Russian was my first and unique choice. I applyed, and went to Vyborg with a scholarship. I dived in the russian society roughly and completely, and despite many troubles, in 11 months many times I was mistaken by russians to be a native speaker.

In 3 years at the university I have learnt the basics of translation. I have already given my support in translation of web sites.
