Since a young age I have grown a passion for languages: French from the age of seven which I learned abroad in a college in Switzerland throughout several summer programmes, English and German during my middle school years with time spent in the UK and Germany.
I enrolled in the University of Bologna to study languages but I soon started working in the commercial field and, as a volunteer, teaching Italian to non-EU children.
I lived along with my family in China and Singapore for five years and there I dedicated myself to teaching Italian to adults and children other than picking up a new language: Chinese!
I then moved back home and still work in the commercial field but I keep my hobbies.HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
I love to travel, meet new people and also host them. As a matter of fact we have a rich experience in hosting people: we have hosted ASL international students, university students and participants in the Workaway program as well as foreing students who came to study Italian in language schools in Verona.
We also had various au pair girls from Germany and America for several years to whom I also taught Italian.
I also like walking, biking, skiing, cooking for friends (I ran a home restaurant for few months), going to the cinema and theatre, volunteering while I don't really like shopping.ACCOMMODATION, FACILITIES AND LOCAL AREA
We live at walking distance to Verona’s city center, in a rather large and comfortable apartment located on the first floor served with a lift. The apartment has been recently refurbished and it is composed of a large kitchen and dining room area, a living room, three bedrooms plus one for the guests three bathrooms and a laundry. For our guest we have a private room and bathroom.EXCURSIONS AND LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
Verona, the city of love with a history spanning more than 2000 years, is not only the city of Romeo and Juliet, but also the “Gateway to Italy”, because it showcases and foreshadows all of Italy’s beauty and cultural wealth to visitors arriving from the north. The Venetian city is enthralling thanks to an atmosphere that is rich in history and priceless beauty. It is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Italy and is the largest city in the Veneto region after Venice. Located next to Lake Garda, delicately nestled at the foot of the Venetian Pre-Alps and on the banks of the Adige River, it is well-loved for its breathtaking panorama and a wealth of culture and art not found anywhere else.
