Month to month, Vittoria tells us about her experience abroad, thanks to the annual Intercultura program in Germany.
Relationships with the host family:
I am happy with my host family. We have had some disagreements on some things, due to differences in personalities, but we have solved them quickly. During these months we have not done many things together, but we have had fun.
Relations with the host community and friends:
I got a lot of new friends! Everything is fine. We go out often, we go to the beach or enjoy the best of what the city offers. We even participate in an environmental protest.
Inclusion and academic achievement with respect to performance and interactions with teachers and peers:
At school I get along quite well with my classmates and sometimes we go out together. Teachers are very helpful and friendly, too. My performance is generally good. Recently, we have taken a few tests.
I go to the gym three times a week, go out with my friends, read books, and study German, Spanish and English.
Three beautiful things I will never forget:
1. My friends.
2. Finding out how it is living by the sea and going to the beach whenever you want.
3. My independence.
Three nasty things I will never forget:
1. The cold winter.
2. The cold Germans.
