Default English Teaching in Verona

Hi, I have just moved to Verona and would like to teach English as a second language. I come from an IT management background in the UK, have a degree in History, studied English at University and I am just about to finish my TEFL course. I was wondering if anyone had any hints or tips for getting employment in the Verona area. Ciao Matthew

Hi Matthew- How are you? I have no information on teaching in Verona. Sorry. Instead, I am hoping to get some advice from you. I will be moving to northern Italy for my husband's job in May. His job will be located in Brescia, but he could commute from Verona. Can you tell me anything about the expat community there, life in general? I'd love to have some information from someone living there now. Any help is very much appreciated! Best of luck on the job search !

Hi Hlufkin, I've been here less than a month and have not met many expats, apart from people who work with my wife. There is an English speaking Happy Hour at Bar Fuori Corso in Via N. Mazza on a Thursday and I have heard that it is well attended by expats and Italians who speak English. I haven't been yet but we intend to go this Thursday, I'll let you know how we get on and I will try to find out what the community is like. Ciao Matthew.

Hi Matthew-thank you so much! I found the English Happy Hour on another forum and checked out their facebook page. It liked like a great group of people. . I'll be curious to hear your impressions of it. What does your wife for work? I was a special education teacher I mainly taught children with dyslexia. Now, I'm home with our 10 month old. My husband works as an engineer/business manager. Looking forward to hearing your impressions. Thanks again!
Heather

Hi Heather, my wife is a Project Manager for an American company and there is a mix of Italian-English speakers. Both of us are learning Italian at the moment and it is on the whole fun, I really think it is essential to try and learn the language. Don't get me wrong many people speak english here or at least understand it but it does makes things so much easier and, to a certain extent, enjoyable. Verona is a very beautiful city and we really enjoy living here, my wife has been here since November and I joined her last month I guess we are still in the honeymoon period so to speak. I'll let you know how we get on. Regards, Matthew

Hi guys! If can be useful, I'm italian and I live in Brescia, Hlufkin!
Brescia is a nice city, less touristic than Verona and more industrialized (it's the second city in Lombardy after Milan). The location is interesting, since it's between Garda Lake and Iseo Lake (not so known but really beautiful) and the city has some interseting historical places (the center is very nice...maybe not as much as Verona, but a lot of friends of mine from abroad think it's not bad!).
About english speaker...I think there are much more people speaking english in Verona, because of tourism...Romeo&Juliet and so on. Anyway, in the last years I've noticed there are much more eng speaker also in my city!

You MUST come here! It's nice to visit in Spring time; and don't forget the Lake of Iseo (since I guess you already know very well Garda Lake!), where you can visit the largest island in a lake (Montisola OR Monte Isola).
Have a nice trip!
Fede

Thank you Fede! It is very helpful to hear from someone who lives in Brescia. How long have you lived there? Do you know of any expat groups that meet in Brescia? Can you recommend any neighborhoods that are very safe and family friendly? We will be coming over in the next month to look for an apartment. We plan to look in Brescia and Verona. Is it better to be in the center of the city or further out? How is public transportation there(buses)? We will have one car. Thank you SO much!

Hi Matt- how are you? Hope the job hunt is going well I was wondering what you thought of the English Speaking Happy Hour. Hope it was useful. Also, wanted to asking you are taking Italian lessons at a school? Lessons are covered for us in our relocation package. We are both planning on taking them. Thanks again for all of the insight! -heather
