Famiglia Ospitante!

Ciao!
So today as I was moping in my room, having a somewhat bad day, I saw that someone was calling me . It was a weird number...But I thought maybe it could be important and I don't want to miss it (you never know). So I answered and this woman told me that she was my Italian host mom! We attempted to communicate in English/German/Italian for 15 mins and finally decided it would be easier to chat on skype! She also sent me 3 emails (4 days ago) that I had to dig for in my junk mail! (Stupid yahoo.) So they live in Sassari, Sardinia!

Sardinia is (as you can see) an island right off of the mainland. I have read about it, watched shows about it, etc and it seems so wonderful and amazing and beautiful I cannot wait!
There are 4 people in my family. My host mom Piera, my host dad Giovannino, my host brother Riccardo (30), and my host sister Ginevra (26). Ginevra is studying in Parma now, so she is not in Sardinia (but hopefully I will still meet her!) My host dad likes cooking (yay!) and my host mom likes listening to music and going to the theatre. Everyone likes reading in the family.
She said Sassari is very beautiful and they live 14km from the ocean!(: There are 150,000 people in Sassari.
I am beyond happy and excited with my placement(: I will also get to live (somewhat) near my good friend Rachael whom I have been talking to for a long time! (She was the first one I talked to who also wanted to go to Italy.)

  2. Wow....Sardinia is so fantastic!!!! The sea is wonderful :D
    Only a little problem: they speak a dialet really difficult and so different by italian that it's considered a language itself xD
    In bocca al lupo :)

  3. I am interested in the 2014-2015 school year to Italy and I was wondering if fundraising is not a good idea unit l can actually apply or if its a done deal that i could possibly start now?

    1. You are planning ahead, that's good! Well I think right now you could definitely sell things and all that. But I wouldn't do any country-specific dinners or anything since you haven't been accepted to Italy and it's a while away. (It's 99% likely that you will so don't worry). What kind of fundraising are you thinking about?
