About the Tutor
When Maura Favretto arrived in Belfast back in 1991, fresh from her Degree in Modern Languages and Literature she was unsure on which path to pursue.
But after obtaining a PGCE from Queen’s University, she found her true calling: to persuade the good people of Northern Ireland that learning Italian could be fun.
Over the years many students took the plunge into la bella lingua, with glee, as she weaved aspects of Italian culture and literature into her language classes.
