Ciao a tutti!
My name is Veronica and I am from Sicily, a gorgeous island in the deep south of Italy, where the people and the weather are always warm and the food is the best in the world!
I got a degree in “Eastern and Western Modern Languages and Literatures” at the University of Palermo.
Teaching has always been the way I want to live my professional life. This is the reason why, as well as being an Italian teacher at IHB, I am also a Spanish teacher in secondary schools.
In my classes, I like conjugating the study of Italian language with that of Italian culture, which boasts countless traditions.
I love encouraging my students to learn a foreign language. It not only helps you to develop new linguistic skills, but it also gives flexibility to your way of thinking and makes you perceive the world from many different points of view.
I am extremely convinced of the importance of dynamism in a class. In order to avoid my students’ yawns I like working on different linguistic skills – speaking, writing, reading, listening – with a playful method and attitude.
I love reading my students’ emails telling me about their holidays in Italy. Once there, they enjoy their linguistic improvements and this makes me so proud of them!
I am very passionate about music. In Italy, I used to study jazz singing and I used to sing in two bands. I look forward to creating a new music project. Bristol is the English capital of music, after all!
I hope to meet you in my classes.
