About me

I started learning French at high school, back in the year 2000: since then, I have studied it year after year - getting DELF Scolaire certificates at Alliance Française Bologna while I still was at high school.

I continued studying French on my own even while I was at University (Computer Engineering) and in December 2013 I managed to pass DALF C1 - an examination dedicated to fluency in French.

I love studying natural languages - in particular, I have also created another website while exploring German.

For further information about me, please visit my personal website.

Special thanks
