Francesca Maritan


My name is Francesca Maritan, I am 43 years old, married with 2 daughters. I come from Udine (Friuli Venezia Giulia– Italy). I love languages and I am a passionate and adaptive person.

I have a master’s degree in Spanish and English Language and Literature from Trieste University with a curriculum on History and Arts including anthropo-psycho-pedagogical disciplines. I am certified TEFL (Teaching English as Foreign Language) and TBE (Teaching Business English). Currently I am studying for my Degree in Arabic Language and Literature. 

I have experience as Language Teacher and Tutor for kids and adults (both in groups and individually) in Italian, English, Spanish, German (up to pre-intermediate level) and Arabic (fundamentals). I had the great opportunity to work as personal F2F teacher with students with Special needs. I trained Teachers to teach English in primary school and students for Language Certification. I worked as free-lance interpreter and translator and certified translation in Italy and Qatar, for individuals and companies. 

As part of the TII HBKU team, my aim is to promote Italian Language and Culture and to create a hub of competent people who would like to know more about our beautiful country. My teaching is based on a functional method so to let students be ready to use Italian easily, in very practical situations.
