Hear from our past interns
Hello! My name is Jessica and I’m from Cork. I graduated in Business Information Systems and worked in the industry for over a year until I was bitten by the travel bug!
I took a leap of faith decided to move to Thailand to teach English.
My name is Seán Ceroni, I grew up in Leitrim but spent the last four years in Dublin for college, studying Art History and Philosophy in Trinity. I was drawn to teaching in Italy by the fact than I’m half Italian and had always wanted to spend some time living in Italy to connect with my roots.
I’ve always been passionate about languages, but it’s thanks to my secondary level Spanish teacher that I realized just how important the role of a teacher is. Even the students whose strengths lay in other areas became passionate about language because of her methods and attitude towards learning.
How it works
Outside the classroom
You’ll be living independently, and there’s nothing you can’t do during your time in paradise. Meet with new-found friends for lunch and trips to the beach or go on a solo adventure to experience another aspect of Italian culture.
