In my leisure time, I like to do as much physical activities as possible since the teaching job and studying can, sometimes, lead to long hours behind a desk. My favourite are jogging, swimming, and indoor climbing. Moreover, I am an admirer of the English theatre and Italian opera. I also appreciate a good book or movie.
My greatest aspiration is to learn about the world and other cultures through foreign languages because as Ludwig Wittgenstein, a great language philosopher, once said “the limits of my language means the limits of my world.”
