Montenegro - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 4

I'm not one of those people who are being satisfied with the simple things. In life I have learned to respect the deadlines, follow the instructions and use them to get to the best possible result. I do not accept a job solely for financial gain but because I want to improve and perfect my knowledges. From my employer I expect to provide me a totaly freedom, because a perfectionist like me knows very well how to do his job. I like to improve myself everyday, learn unusal and non common things. My biggest passion are languages. I am fluent in Italian, English and Spanish. I'm a professor of Italian and Spanish and I have a strong desire to prove myself. I would like to open language school, which will be dominated by Italian and Oriental languages​​, above all Hindi. I have extensive experience in translation and I'm a person that will meet all your expectations in terms of translation. I speak Italian from the age of seven and the majority of Italian speakers do not believe that I was not born in Italy. This is a brief summary of my experiences and expectations, and you should contact me if you are offering a job in the field of Italian language. My primary interest is the Italian language but I'm also interested in jobs like: data entry, administrative support, blog writing, article writing, virtual assistent, web design, autoCAD modelling etc. My expressed qualities are optimistic spirit, communication skills, accuracy and extraordinary verbal skills.
