I Dream of Italy; 10 Reasons to Teach English in Italy

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Teaching English in Italy is not just a great way to boost your resume and gain international job experience, it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore the world while living like a local.

Here are 10 more reasons to Teach in Italy this Fall!


1. Live in Europe for about $400 per month.

Don’t worry, we did the math for you… that’s $13.33 per day. Your friends at home will be spending that much on their daily Triple-Venti-Half Sweet-Non-Fat, Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks. Speaking of which, why don’t you start your day in Italy with a “marocchino” with Nutella? It’s a specialty you’ll only find in Torino. (It’s a mix of coffee, milk and Nutella. Yes, please.)

2. Visit Cinque Terre, Rome, Florence, Venice or Barcelona over the weekend…NBD.

4. You’ll put Nutella on everything. We mean everything.

Fun fact: did you know that Nutella was invented in Piedmont, the very region where you’ll be living?


5. You’ll ski like an Olympian.

Torino was the home of the 2006 Winter Olympics

6. Travel by Planes, Trains, and Automobiles…(and bicycles!)

7. Because gelato.

All day, every day.




8. You’ll become Besties with your Students




 9. Because an Italian Homestay = An Italian Family for Life

Andrea’s host family learned so much about the US during her stay, they decided they had to come check it out for themselves! Here they are, reunited in New York City!



10. And because they won’t want to see you go…
