Clare Harrison

Clare Harrison is a really smart and nice girl. She’s teaching english in Reggio Emilia, in Italy, and she works and lives in this Country since some time by now. We askerd her how is it living in Italy.

1. Clare, how long have you been here in Italy ?

I’ve been here for about 2 and half years now.

 

2. How do you feel in Italy and what are the first, main differences you have found, comparing it to your own Country ?

I like it here very much, the biggest differences to everyday life are small things like keys with 2 sides, weighing your own vegetables in the supermarket and having petrol put in the car by someone else! In terms of culture, the most obvious differences are the emphasis is on personal relationships, people make time to be with each other, more so than in the UK and this affects everyday life from having a long lunch hour to eat with the family to trying to find a new job or appartment.

3. Do you think to stay in Italy for a little, medium, or a long period ?

I’m not sure but I can’t see myself going back anytime soon.
4. Would you recommend to your friends to come here in Italy to live or to stay for a while ?

Definitely! They need to make sure they have some sort of support system (job etc) and determination if they don’t speak the language!

 

5. Which are your italian favorite Cities, and places?

A difficult one! I like Lake Garda and Venice is my favourite city to get lost in- you never know what you might find!
