Testimonials from Participants in the Erasmus + KA2 Project in Rovigo (Italy)
For me, participating in the Erasmus + project in Rovigo, Italy, was a very pleasant experience because I had never left the country. In addition, I found the hospitality of the family pleasant, who did everything to make me feel like in Portugal, as at home. I also enjoyed getting to know more or less the daily life of Italian students. I also found the robotics class rewarding because it taught basic sensor functions to robot movements. As for the visits we made to the museums, churches, palace, I found it beautiful because we know the type of painting / architecture of monuments in Italy.
I really enjoyed participating in this project! My Erasmus + experience in Rovigo was great! I loved it very much! The family that hosted me was incredible, and I did not imagine that the relationship between me and the family I stayed with would be so good. The food was great and what they say about the pizzas and the pasta is even true! They are really good, and besides the pizzas and the pasta there were also other very good dishes that I had never experienced or even seen. The study visits to Padua and Venice, for example, were really good, I saw some incredible and very interesting things. One of the places I liked most to visit was the Basilica of St. Anthony, and the museum with the exhibition on Galileo, but it does not mean that I did not like the others because they all had their interesting part. As I said, this trip / experience was incredible, spectacular, and unforgettable, I do not know if I will participate again in a trip of these, but if you do not participate, it does not hurt, as there must be many other people who enjoyed participating in this project, and I strongly advise you to sign up! This project did me very well and I will never forget it, as it is also my first experience abroad.
The week I was in Italy, I had a good experience on all levels: I made new friends, I met a new family that welcomed me and I learned a little Italian. I really enjoyed the school and the teachers, I also had the opportunity to visit historical monuments, churches, cities and museums. I was very happy to have participated in this activity!
The experience of doing Erasmus for a week in the home of people I did not know and in a completely different place from the usual one was incredible and no doubt repeated again. It was a trip that I will never forget for a variety of reasons, among which being a week at the home of people I had never seen before, having a different routine from day to day, meeting new people, speaking a different language every day, know a new culture and new places in the world. Without a doubt, I advise everyone that if ever I have the opportunity to do it in order not to waste it, it is a unique experience.
I really enjoyed the experience. If I had another chance, I would certainly attend again!
As part of the ERASMUS + project, during the trip to Rovigo (Italy), I was able to observe many of the region's monuments and some of their customs, and I was able to sample several typical foods. I could also make great friends and great discoveries. Over the course of a week in Italy, I was able to associate several Italian words with some Portuguese and managed to learn a little Italian. I met the customs of young people, such as after school, being with friends, going to bars, going to parties and not just staying at home on the computer. What captivated me most was the hospitality of the family who welcomed me, because I never lacked anything, they were all very friendly and very attentive! I will do the same when you come here.
