Sheila
CENTRAL EUROPE AREA MANAGER
Based in Fabriano, ITALY
My name is Sheila. I have always been keen on languages and everything concerned with the knowledge of a language, such as culture, history, art and traditions, especially Italian ones. In the last four years I have got to know and become interested in the Dutch language, having lived in Flanders where I had classes of Italian language students and did my best to disseminate our culture, which is undoubtedly full of history and exciting to discover, in addition to the Italian language! I think that getting to know other cultures is not only a form of enriching your person but it also results in enhancing the positive aspects of each culture. This is why I believe that I will never get tired of looking for new challenges!
