Photos of Teaching English in Italy

As some of you might know, we recently hosted a photo and video contest for LanguageCorps participants.  One of the winners, Sarah, sent us a great set of photos from her time teaching English in Florence, as well as her travels throughout the rest of Italy.

While we have previously shared the work of some of the winners of the contest, I thought it would be fun to highlight some specific examples, to provide a more in depth glimpse into the life of a LanguageCorps teacher abroad.

Here are some amazing photos from Sarah in Florence.  You can check out more of her work at her excellent blog, http://italyproject365.wordpress.com/.

Anyone who has been to Florence can tell you, the magic of this city is hard to beat.  The Arno River is one of its defining characteristics, winding it’s way through this picturesque city.  It’s almost too perfect.

Biking is the preferred method of travel for many people in Europe, Italy included.  I’d like to think that the US is catching up to this mindset, but we still have a long way to go!

Bologna, Italy.  I’ve never been, but it looks beautiful!  One of the great parts of teaching English abroad is having your weekends and vacation time free to travel around.

Many people think of a Macchiato as the Starbucks drink, full of carmel and a bit like a sweeter version of a Latte, but the traditional Italian version of the drink is actually just espresso and steamed milk.

Duomo

The Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower, or the Duomo as it is commonly referred to, is the main and most distinguishable Cathedral in Florence.  It is truly a breathtaking sight, both during the day and at night.

Few things in life are as good as an authentic Italian Gelato 🙂

The Arena of Verona, Italy.  The Colosseum in Rome is obviously the most famous arena in Italy, but there are many other similar structures to be found throughout the country.  Some of the smaller ones can be even more fun to visit, providing the same awe-inspiring sense of history, without the crowds of the Roman ruins.
