Antonio Libertino is a widely experienced teacher who has also learned English and German. In fact he loves language and cultures, both Italian and foreign, and for this reason he took the Ditals (the certificate for teaching Italian to foreigners issued by the Università per stranieri di Siena), the Certificate of Advanced English and went to Ferrero in Frankfurt to learn German in the winter of 2003. There he ate three kilos of Nutella (Italian creamy chocolate) in three months but he didn't put on too much weight. Now he teaches Italian to foreigners, adults and youngsters from every nationality and runs his Bed and Breakfast, near Tropea, his beloved home town.
