Improve your English with Vicolocorto! It’s for free!

Would you like to improve your English but you already got bored studying grammar books, doing countless numbers of language exercises? We have a great news for you!

Vicolocorto with EVS volunteers organize English language conversations every Friday at Job Centre in Pesaro! The initiative is dedicated to everyone who would like to improve its English speaking skills. Your current level of the language doesn’t matter. The  most important is your motivation to learn.locandina english discussion (VICOLOCORTO)

We started last Friday, 15 of January and we were very happy to see all of you, full of  positive energy and ready to learn!

The level of the English was spreading from not so low to really high. All the people that came were very motivated, interesting and ready to speak!

We got to know each other and we broke the first ice! People opened up even more after they noticed that our English is not perfect as well and that Paulina is also trying to learn Italian.

So we spent 2 hours talking, talking and again talking! And we are going to continue in this way! Some of them already told us they are going to come again! Now it’s time for you to come and break the first ice!

Every week we will prepare something new for you to make this meetings interested and helpful for your speaking English skills!

So, don’t be afraid and join us! We are waiting for you with all our positive energy! All together we can do it!

Mid-term: Valutare, divertirsi e molto altro…

Ciao tutti

Ancora Khacho e Milena sono con voi. Siamo appena tornati a Pesaro dalla nostra formazione “mid-term” a Napoli (Nola). Siamo molti contenti e sicuramente molto stanchi. Perché stanchi? Perché generalmente abbiamo dormito poco durante tutti 3 i giorni.

Siamo rimasti davvero contenti perché quando siamo arrivati, abbiamo incontrato molti nostri amici dalla formazione “on-arrival” che abbiamo fatto alla fine di settembre e ci sono mancati. Abbiamo anche conosciuto altri nuovi volontari SVE. Durante la formazione abbiamo valutato tutti i nostri progetti e abbiamo discusso su come risolvere i conflitti che sono accaduti durante i nostri SVE. Abbiamo parlato di “youth-pass” e di 8 competenze che generalmente i volontari sviluppano durante i loro progetti.

Una cosa interessante è stata vedere come le persone sono cambiate in positivo durante questi 3 mesi. Tutti noi siamo più “open-minded”, con più esperienza e più conoscenza. Ci siamo divertiti molto dopo le attività di formazione nel bar di “Paulino”, in Piazza Duomo di Nola con I ragazzi locali. Così divertente, momenti felici, nuovi amici e nuovi ricordi positivi. In breve – un’esperienza indimenticabile.

Italia, Mi Piace

Hello everyone! I’m Paulina and I’m glad to tell you that I am a new volunteer in Vicolocorto!

When the December came, I packed my bag and I left Poland to come to Italy to start my adventure with EVS project in Pesaro. I’m gonna spend there 8 months and I’m really excited about it. I’ve already met a lot of great people what made me feel here like at home! Thanks for warm welcome!

I come from southern Poland, HOMETOWNmy hometown is Nowy Sacz, quite close to the Tatra Mountains and Cracovia as well!
The region is really beautiful so if you would like to discover it, don’t be hesitate and come to find me there when I will be back!

My love is travelling. Since few years I’ve visited quite a lot of places. One of them was Portugal, where I went for a weekly trip with my friends hitchhiking from the very south until we reached splendid Porto. During all my trips I like to meet local people, talk to them, get to know the history of the places and traditions. I’m also happy to try the typical regional food.

Last year I spent in Pisa on my Erasmus student exchange and I completely fell in love in Italy. Erasmus in Italy has changed me into a better one, opened my mind, gave me wings of faith and a lot of courage. However banal it can sound that was really life-changing experience for me. I hope my EVS will be second great chapter of that story.
