Hello, my name is Jacqui, that’s short for Jacqueline. I’m a London-born English teacher presently living and working in the beautiful Veneto region of Northern Italy. I`m inviting you to stay with our family in Italy and learn English with me. Before your trip we can have several online English lessons to get to know each other and get prepared for English course in Italy. Read more about Jacqui.
Students live as part of the family and therefore join in all our social and every day activities such as shopping, walking, cooking etc. (My partner is a great cook and students who want to learn how to make some typical Italian dishes will enjoy cooking with him). We have many English speaking friends and try to organise at least a couple of social events whilst the students are staying with us.
Lesson content has to be decided before the students’ arrival and will obviously depend on their needs and level. I also have a large library of DVDs and English books the students can make use of during their stay.
The picturesque area in the mountains
My house is in a very beautiful rural area in the foothills of the pre dolomites and is surrounded by vineyards, woods and cherry orchards. There are wonderful walks with views of the dolomites and it’s very peaceful (perfect for studying!) The nearest village is 6 minutes by car and there one can find bank, pharmacy, supermarket etc.
Verona is 35 mins by car, Lake Garda 45 mins by car and Venice an hour by train. I would pick up and drop off students at the airport and if they want to go out on their own I can drop them off at the station or in town and pick them up later (or they can hire a car)
Alternatively there is a very nice bed and breakfast next door to me with swimming pool should students prefer to stay there. In this case the price of the B&B would be deducted from my asking price but all other arrangements would remain the same with lessons and 2 meals a day taken at my house.
£140 per day (10% discount for additional studying guests & 20% for non-studying guests)
- 2-3 hours of lessons x 5 days per week (depending on excursion schedule),
- accommodation in a double or single room with own bathroom,
- full-board (breakfast, light lunch and dinner, including evening in pizzeria, except for when we are out on an excursion or any meals in restaurants).
Minimum duration of the programme
B&B with swimming pool
Also if you would like to have the use of an outdoor swimming pool, you could also stay at the B&B next door (if they have a room). You would sleep and have breakfast there but spend most of the rest of the time with Jacqui in her house except for your free/study time.
Venice, Lake Garda, Verona, Opera in Verona, Soave, Vicenza, Bassano del grappa, Mantova, Molina waterfall park, Marostica, visit to a natural hot water terme, to the Lessini Mountains and many other interesting places like Gastronomic Excursions. (Visitors pay extra small amount for excursions).
For a one week stay one long and 2 short excursions (ex Verona, Soave & Lake Garda) recommended with 15 hours lesson schedule.
Cooking lessons can be organized with a professional chef for 50€ or we can hold them ourselves either instead of English lessons or at an extra cost of 20€. Because cooking lessons are in English they are a very enjoyable way to practice speaking, learn everyday & cooking vocabulary and enjoy some fantastic Italian dishes.
Walking. For those who like to walk there’s plenty of beautiful countryside from right outside our door! Walking/ hiking trips in the mountains nearby can also be organized.
Cycling. We have 2 bicycles guests can use but be prepared the area is hilly!
Dogs. I have 2 dogs (weimaraners) who are extremely friendly, but a homestay with us would not be suitable for someone who is afraid of or allergic to dogs.
