CIAO AND WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF DUE SPAGHETTI !
My name is Irene, I am 24 years old and I am an Italian girl, of Sicilian origins.
I have lived in Sicily, Tuscany (where I graduated from the university in healthcare), Ireland and currently I live in Lombardy.
I have travelled often throughout my life.
My love for languages and for linguistic exchange started in childhood, when, to play with the new foreign children of the neighborhood, I needed to translate sentences into their language.
I have always considered language learning "a game that allowed me to expand my circle of friends" and being a very sociable person, I was able to transform this activity into a hobby that gradually became part of my daily life.
I felt I had to share this passion / obsession for languages with the world because I believe that learning a new language somehow transforms us into those neighbors who needed to find new words to play better.
Without a doubt, languages open up new horizons and create new connections.
I speak Italian, English, Spanish well and I am learning Portuguese and Modern Greek.
During the quarantine I started working as an Italian tutor on Italki (online platform for language tutors and teachers to foreign students).
"Due spaghetti - Your Italian buddy" was created in this period, in the form of an Instagram profile to teach Italian in a fun and light way and to counter an already sad and heavy climate, due to the pandemic.
This profile was designed for an audience of only 20 students but, over the months, the amount of followers has grown more and more.
I consider myself a person with a lot of imagination and creativity who, in order to live with positivity, needs to let the mind run free.
I am very excited at the idea of meeting new people with this new project.
Therefore, I invite you to read my articles in the blog section (you can find the link in the side bar of this site)
and to interact with me in the comments.
I look forward to meeting you all soon!
