Biography:

Mrs. Carla Pezzini-Fischer is a legal translator (B.A.) and conference interpreter (M.A.), graduated from the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she is originally from. While doing her studies, she started working as an in-company trainer in Buenos Aires. She then discovered how much she enjoyed teaching foreign languages to adults. In the year 2000 she moved to Erlangen, Germany, where she lived for 15 years.  During this period of time, she pursued and developed her teaching career both by attending courses on adult education under the European Union standards (and in accordance with the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages") as well as by working as a language trainer in renown international companies and in different "Volkshochschulen".

In the year 2014 she successfully passed the Goethe Institut "C2- Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom" exam, which entitles her to teach German as a Foreign Language.

She is passionate about her job. Teaching is for her more than just transmitting knowledge. It is about inspiring others to open their minds and to appreciate the life-rewarding experience of learning.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, her German husband and their three children. The children are raised bilingual in both German and Spanish and they have been learning English since the family moved to Winnipeg in June 2015.
