Diana Bianciardi

Tutoring in:  Italian

Diana started her working life as a secondary school teacher in English and History before stepping sideways and working in adult education. That is where she remained for the next 33 years! During that time Diana travelled to Italy on numerous occasions and continued studying Italian in Melbourne and in Italy (Siena, Lucca and Bologna) She is a keen Italophile and has lived in Italy for short periods of time.
In retirement Diana returned to her great love of Italian language and culture and has completed a post graduate Diploma of Arts (Italian Language) at Melbourne University. As well as her original teaching qualifications Diana followed up her interest in languages by obtaining a post graduate Diploma in MultiCultural Studies, including TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) as an adult student.
Her interests are travel, food and wine of different cultures, music (world and classical), film and literature.
She looks forward to sharing her enthusiasm for Italian language and life with other U3A students.
