    La famiglia giusta per me

    Mamma mia che casiniste! Era domenica sera verso le h 21:00 (ora italiana) quando la famiglia mi aveva chiamato. In realtà l’appuntamento era per le h 20:30, ma non riuscivamo a metterci in contatto su Skype poiché io avevo inviato la richiesta a loro già giorni prima, ma non me l’avevano accettata e non potevo scrivergli; lei sul momento stava invece cercando di scrivere ad un’altra Ylenia e non trovava me (non chiedetemi perché), mentre la bimba più grande continuava a scrivermi su WhatsApp con il telefono della madre e andammo avanti così per mezz’ora. Fu solo l’inizio del chaos mentale di questa famiglia, caratteristica intrinseca della stessa. 😀 Ed…

    That’s strange!

    I swear: I didn’t know anything about this kind of experience. Well, I had some schoolmates who had gone to Ireland or in Canada for example with the purpose of improving their English and maybe they stayed in a family as well, but those were completely different experiences. They paid for them, or better their parents. And they had an association organizing the English course, finding an host family and so on…But my parents couldn’t pay for me: I had to do it on my own. As I was really young and at that moment I hadn’t have any experiences alone, I didn’t want to run any risk. But this…
