melissa_200x200Hello everybody! Here’s what Melissa tells us about her italianity:

“Ciao! Sono Melissa la studentessa matta – the crazy student of Italian! In college I studied painting and Art History in Firenze. Regretting I didn’t learn the language better at that time, about fifteen years ago I began to self teach-myself the Italian language. I have since become fluent using every means available to me! I now promote the study of the Italian language through the Studentessa Matta Project. I write a blog in Italian called Diario di una Studentessa Matta (www.studentessamatta) to exercise and flex language skills and encourage others to study the language. The blog explores all aspects of Italian culture & current events in a light and humorous way. Also featured are language learning tips, websites, videos & articles that are helpful to obtaining fluency. I travel frequently to Italy and three years ago I began to organize Matta Language and Cultural trips to Italy, for those who want to dive beneath the surface and use their the language in a fun and meaningful way. I am so crazy for Italy and the language that recently I have also initiated a monthly podcast series called “Italian Talk for Lovers of the Language”.”
