ITL235 Advanced Conversation

Simone Maria Gugliotta

I hold a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from the Italian Studies Program at the Univeristy of Massachusetts, a degree in Italian and Portuguese from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and a degree in Journalism from the Federal University Fluminense in Rio de Janeiro State. In addition, I have a post-graduate certificate in Brazilian history from Candido Mendes University in Rio de Janeiro, and I received two scholarships for Italian descendents born in Latina America to study in Italy, at the America Latinissima in Rome and Calabria, and at the Dante Alighieri University in Calabria

I was born in Rio de Janeiro and I am the daughter of Sicilian and Calabrese immigrants to Brazil. My passion for Italy started at home with my parents where their two southern Italian dialects (Calabrese and Sicilian) were my first languages.

I have taught Italian and Portuguese at the University of Massachusetts, and in language schools and for private students at all levels since 1991. I also have experience teaching children in Montessori schools and have worked as a staff and free-lance journalist since 1995 with the publications "Jornal do Commercio" and "Comunità Italiana."
