Language Skills


I've obtained an overall band score of 6.5 in the IELTS language certification.
I spent the last three years in a multi-cultural environment, partially abroad (Wellington, New Zealand) so I'm pretty confident with English language also with native speakers. Plus during the last 5 years I've actively improved my listening and reading abilities by attending online e-learning classes, TV series and TED Talks.


I've improved my listening on the workplace, thanks to some foreign colleagues. I'm also planning to attend some language classes to improve it.
