My name is Sarah. I'm your English 'addestratrice' this semester. I'm American and I've been here for 15 years. I love Obama. I hope to take the next 3 years off to do my PhD.
I think my English is great, but I'm still an A1 in German :-( so I need to study a lot every day.

I live in Loreggia, a small village near Padua. In my free time I love reading and cooking. I am also interested in travelling and in visiting new places; as a matter of fact, next summer I would like to fly to Norway.
As far as my knowledge of English is concerned, I would be happy to enrich my vocabulary with august words and to improve my listening skills. I hope to become familiar with blogs and Web 2.0 technology, too.
On Thursday I would like to attend lessons at 8.30 a.m.

My name is Sabrina. I'm German and study English and Spanish at the University of Freiburg. The next five months I'm going to spend here in Padova to do an exchange program and learn Italian.
I love travelling, learning languages and getting to know other people. Apart from that, I also like to do all different kinds of sports, to go to the cinema and the theater.
How far my language skills are concerned, I would like to interact with my fellow students, extend my vocabulary and rethorical skills and eloquence such as talking in front of a group of people.
I would like to go to group B because I've got another course at 8.30. However, as I'm still not sure if I can take part in this class, my preference is not a priority;-)

Hi, I'm Elisa (Elisa De Polo, 583942-LSC), I'm 24 and I live in Treviso. I love reading, writing and going to the cinema.
I sometimes still feel quite nervous when speaking with foreign people because I know they're judging me, so I think I have to practice a lot in order to be able to cope with different situations. I think I also have to improve my writing skills in order to be able to write a good thesis.
I would prefer to be in group B (Thursday 10.30-12.00) since I have Spanish at 8.30.

Hi, my name is Sara Marabiso, my matricola number is 587123 and I'm attending the second year specialistica of "Lingue per la Comunicazione Internazionale".
I was not here the last semester, because I won a grant to do an internship in an international organization based in London. I'm 24 years old,I like travelling, reading, writing and listening to music, particularly rock music. I'm working as a promoter and receptionist in a gym and I hope to finish my university as soon as possible! :)
I still feel quite uncomfortable in my oral production in English, because I'm not able to apply my grammar knowledge correctly while speaking. So I would really like to improve my fluency.
I can come only to the second-turn lesson on Thursdays, because at 8.30am I have to attend my Spanish course.

Cheers

Hi! My name is Chiara and like all of you I'm attending my last semester at the University. I really don't know what I will do after graduation, but I hope to find an interesting job where the use of languages is also required.
With regard to language and communication, I don't feel very good in oral speaking because I 've never had the opportunity to practice and so I feel insecure of myself.

My name is Martina. I'm attending the last year at the university of Padova. I study English and German. They are both fascinating, even if completely different from Italian. But I think they are similar between them in some aspects. I hope to graduate at the end of 2009 and then to find a good job, which requires foreign language knowledge. Thus I need to improve my oral skills (accuracy and fluency), and writing skills (vocabulary and accuracy), too.

Have a nice semester!!

Hello everyone!
I'm Valentina Tolfo. This is our last University year and I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to be done with my studies. ; )
Anyway, I hope I'll enjoy the second part of this course as much as I enjoyed the first one. I'm sure I'll learn lots of new things, because our teacher is extremely creative, don't you agree? : )
About my English, well, I really love writing in this language and I'm quite good at it, but I still need to work hard to improve my oral skills, that unfortunately are my weakest point.

Valentina
P.S. Thursday mornings 10.30, please! I'm a commuter, so please let me sleep a little bit more! Thanks a lot! : )

Hello everyone, my name is Francesca. I study "Foreign Languages for International Communication" at the University of Padua. I love English and I would like to find a job that allows me to work with it, such as, translating or interpreting. I really love travelling and when I'll be graduated I would like to have a break and go around Europe.
