Hello,

I am completely new to this forum and was hoping for any information about living in Reggio Calabria? I have been offered a 9 month contract as an EFL teacher to work at a language school.

Accomodation is provided and the position would be brilliant in terms of professional development but it does mean leaving my partner in England, hopefully only for 4 months as he is planning to come and join me.

The school also provides 60 hours of Italian lessons but I will start with no Italian whatsoever :S

I'm quite a social person and am just a bit concerned that I wont meet people whilst I'm there. Are many English people living in the area? What is like as a city/town?

Any advice/information would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Maha,

Reggio is a beautiful city overlooking the strait of Messina and there are some expats living there and in the area. I am sure you will make some acquaintances through this site and maybe some Facebook groups.

Enjoy your stay in Calabria!

All the best,

Dennis.

I had chance to visit Reggio Calabria in July this year and had a great time. We found some amazing restaurants, friendly people & reasonably priced shops so can't wait to return for another visit.

Hi Vosia,
You didn't mention the Riaci Bronzes on your posting regarding your visit to Reggio. They are unique world class bronzes from the 4/5th Century BC. They have recently been restored and are housed in a new specially prepared rooms at the National Museum.
