About the Director – Maria Gibson

Maria grew up and was educated in Milan, Italy. From an early age she learnt to speak English and French, attending classes and travelling to France to stay over the summer with relatives who put her in the local school to mix her with French children and to make new friends.

She attended a specialist School of Foreign Languages in Milan where she studied and practiced full-time English and German languages, achieving the highest grades.

She then attended the European Institute of Design in Milan where she gained a Degree in Design.

She helped in her mother’s international business with translating and interpreting during the annual international fashion exhibitions held in Milan at the International Trade Exhibition Centre.

She then married an Englishman, Stephen Gibson, a Civil Engineer. She moved to England to start her married life in her new country. She had three children and she is now teaching them to speak Italian, hoping that they will appreciate the importance of knowledge and use of foreign languages in the future.

The international family background inspired her to keep alive the passion for foreign languages and to set up a business where these special skills can be applied to provide flexible and cost effective services for clients.
