My name is Anna Demarchi. I come from Italy and my native language is Italian. I also speak three other languages, French, Spanish, and English. I hold a BA in French and Spanish and a MA in French Literature, both from San Jose State University. I have always had a passion for languages and considered them essential to better understand the world and to appreciate its multiform culture. After working for 6 years as an Export manager for an Italian company, and 8 years for Apple in Ireland, I moved to California in 2008, where I discovered my passion for teaching languages and for passing on my appreciation of Latin cultures.
