"Only where you were on foot, there you really were", said Goethe. I have made this quote my motto because I am on the move every day, not only physically but also mentally. My name is Simone and I come from Italy. My whole life is a journey that has led me to love the German language. When I studied German and English in Italy, I came closer to the German language. I have been living in Germany for eight years now, where I was able to deepen my knowledge through the Erasmus programme and by studying German Studies in Jena. Along the way, I taught Italian and later German as a foreign language at the adult education centre. It was then that I realised that teaching foreign languages was my passion. As a foreigner, I always wanted to teach others the language so that they could find their way and enjoy their destination in Germany as much as I did.
