Visit the site: www.aboutenglish.it It's cool! By teens, for teens!
And, stay curious!






















I'm an Italian teacher of English language and literature ( before I worked in a middle school, now in a secondary one).
But my great love is Internet, as you can imagine. I think it has lots of learning potentialities, because it's stimulating, creative and fun!
By the way, visit the website I have created with my students:

Thanks to the web I've met nice people all over the world, I've created pages on topics I'm interested in and I've found updated nformation about everything!

I also love reading
"There is no frigate like a book
to take us lands away" Emily Dickinson says in a poem

I like travelling abroad ( and go to the seaside) because
"travel does not merely broaden the mind. It makes the mind" as Bruce Chatwin wrote in The Anatomy of

That's why
"Afoot and light-hearted,
I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me [...]
Will you come travel with me? "
(Walt Whitman,"Song of the Open Road").

And then, of course, I adore cats!!!

Last but not least, a great poem by L.Hughes


"Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow."

Thank you so much for your collaboration, I'm happy to have new friends now and I hope to hear from you again!
