Meet the team: Maria

It’s that time again, where we tell you a bit about the people that make up busuu HQ.

In our last ‘Meet the team’ blog post we introduced you to the lovely Jennifer, our Head of Talent. Today we introduce you to Maria, our happy, smiley Junior Product Manager. Maria describes herself as an ice-skating fanatic, Roger Federer admirer and Russian language enthusiast!


How long have you been with busuu?
One year.

Where are you from?

How many languages do you speak and what are they?
I speak Italian, Russian and English and I have a basic knowledge of Czech and Bulgarian

Have you experienced any funny misunderstandings when learning a new language or visiting a foreign country?
Yes, when I was learning Russian I once asked a question that sounded like “What kind of person is in that sandwich?”

How would you describe working at busuu?
Working at busuu is really exciting: every day is different and full of new challenges and our team is amazing and very multicultural. It’s definitely a great place to work.

For me language learning means…
…being able to communicate with more people, discover different cultures and broaden my knowledge of the world.

    Летом 2013-го посмотрел интервью Марии отечественным ребятам (не помню кому именно). Отметил, что у Марии хоть и заметен акцент, проблем с понимаем не было, построение речи на хорошем уровне. Интересно узнать, как Мария относится к проблеме акцента?
    What about last question in the post? – Of course! That will be interesting, I suppose.
