>My name is Andy.
I am a qualified Teacher of English as a second language.
I currently live and work in Milan, Italy.
I teach all ages and types of student, however, I specialise in Business English as I have over 20 years experience in business in the UK, particularly in the areas of manufacturing, computers and law.
I like to use authentic material in the classroom including newspapers, television news, films and articles from the internet. I also use books including International Express and Headstart.
I have extensive knowledge of using net based programmes as an aid to teaching, allowing the students to listen to authentic English speakers in their own time or as homework.

I am an ESL teacher too. I have TEFL qualifications and my BA degree is in History.
I have recently applied for a job in a primary school in Milan (Montessori) and I am waiting to see what they will say.
I wonder if 2400 Euro is a good salary. Accommodation will be provided. How about electricity and food though? I don’t like going out a lot but if the cost of living is high, I worry that I may not be able to save anything. Also, in your opinion are foreign people generally accepted in Milan? I’ve heard there is some racism.
I would appreciate it if you could reply because I may have other job offers too.
Have a good day
Yes, for Italy, 2400 is good especially as accomodation is provided (free, I suppose). It is quite expensive to live here but there are things you can do to cut the cost – even if you go out – like, for example, going for apperitivos, having one drink and helping yourself to plenty of food – you just have to pick the right bars.
Yes, there is some racism. It depends where you’re from, I think. Generally, people don’t seem to like different skin colours or Esatern Europeans..
Good luck with the job.
