My experience in Adelaide is really good and I can’t believe it’s been five months since I arrived. I love Australia, I love the beaches and the weather. Thanks to this experience I met many other exchange student from other countries like Brazil, Japan, Chile, Germany… I have visited many things: Adelaide, beaches, zoo, botanic garden, the university, Granite Island, Mount Lofty, Windy Point… They are all beautiful places and I saw beautiful sunsets over the sea.
My school, Seaford Secondary College, is different from my Italian school, but I like it. My teachers are kind and they helped me to understand when I was confused and given advice. Thanks to the school I got to take surfing lessons, but also to take part in lessons different than Italian subjects, like food, dance, drama… In this picture I was doing a cinema course with other students.
I tried many kinds of different foods and some I like, but others don’t. My favorite is pasta penne with mozzarella, tomato sauce and chicken cooked in the oven. My host parents often do it for dinner. Last month I turned 18 and my host family organized a small party for my birthday. During the two weeks of vacation I went to Melbourne with my host family and my host sisters from Germany and Japan.
Initially I was kinda scared to leave because I would have gone to a country where I didn’t know anyone, but from the first day everyone was very kind and made me feel comfortable.
I love to do this experience and I love to live in Australia.
