Les assistants de langue

Antonio

Ciao a tutti, mi chiamo Antonio Tarantini e sono italiano. Ho 25 anni e vengo da Squinzano, una cittadina vicino a Lecce, in Puglia (nel sud-est dell’Italia). Ho studiato all’università del Salento (a Lecce) e mi sono laureato in “Lingue moderne, letterature e traduzione”. Ho sempre amato le lingue straniere, ne conosco quattro (inglese, francese, un po’ di tedesco e portoghese), ma la mia preferita è il francese, per questo ho scelto di venire in Francia come assistente di italiano a scuola. Di fatti, volevo conoscere la Francia stando sul posto e anche fare un’esperienza lavorativa a scuola, visto che vorrei essere un insegnante. Amo passeggiare, ascoltare musica e leggere (soprattutto i gialli, ma non solo). Ah, e naturalmente, una delle mie passioni è proprio il francese, che sto avendo modo di scoprire ogni giorno di più vivendo e lavorando a Épinal.
