InterExchange Teach English Italy (volunteer) Reviews

I highly recommend teaching in Italy with InterExchange

I applied to become a teaching assistant in Italy with InterExchange and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity which I loved. I really had no idea what to expect before arriving but InterExchange made the whole experience smooth and enjoyable (Ashley in the InterExchange office was brilliant).

I taught in two schools and all the local staff were so friendly and spoke excellent English. I was never left to teach alone in the classroom. The kids were a pleasure to be around, as they were so friendly and always keen to improve their English. My host family were very welcoming, I felt like part of the family and they taught me so many things. On the weekends, I got to see more of Italy and the French Riviera and eat the delicious local cuisine (especially the gelato).

This program had such an impact on my life. I learned new skills through teaching and tutoring, gained more confidence traveling by myself being thousands of miles away from home, and met a family I will never forget. Thank you, InterExchange, for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime.
