Testimonial

Courtney in Italy

I had a great time in Italy! The family were great and I got along with my host mum really well. I loved living in Italy and experiencing their culture first hand, I met so many great people and was welcomed into the family. I learnt so much about their culture especially around Christmas and new years and it was a bit of a shock as it was so different to a Christmas spent at home but I still had a great time and it was very hard to leave the family when it was time to go home. Thank you for all your help and support whilst I was on this trip, it didn’t go unnoticed.

Samantha in Italy

I wanted to let you know that everything is going very well with my family. Their child and I get along very well and he understands English exceptionally well for a six year old. They are also helping me learn some Italian. Silvia in particular made sure I had an enjoyable week and connected me with a friend of hers who showed me around a lot of Rome. I am loving my time here in Italy. Thank you very much!
