Alessia Corte Sualon
After living in Italy her whole life, Alessia decided to move to Vancouver as soon as she completed her degrees in Cultural Mediation (BA) and in Specialized Translation and Conference Interpreting (MD). Her main objective was always to share her passion for languages and different cultures with other people. Her love for her own country has always driven her to develop and perfection her language skills overtime and she is looking forward to welcoming you all into her classroom to put them to good use. Her passions include traveling, reading, and exploring the outdoors.
I grew up in Italy where I reached the rank of captain of the Air Force and as a lawyer obtained a doctorate in Commercial and Business Law at the Universitá degli Studi La Sapienza di Roma. I recently moved to Vancouver with my family. I am a lover of Italian cuisine, especially Sicilian, and a fan of “calcio”, but also of other sports. I spent my childhood and adolescence in my wonderful Sicily, specifically in Catania. Teaching is part of my DNA. Currently I am a University Professor and Associate Researcher of Law. I was an Italian instructor several universities and Italian associations, for instance at the Dante Alighieri Society, chapter Cali Colombia where I lived for several years. I’m a certified examinator for language exams. Teaching Italian is above all a way to promote Italian culture and “l’Italianitá.”
