We look forward to sharing this experience with your students.

"growing up as an only child i never knew how important having a sibling was, but during only 2 weeks darcy and maj made me realise what sisterhood really meant"
"I loved going to Melbourne, it has been a wonderful experience. Starting from the people, who will make you feel at home, no matter which house you go to."
"I'm really grateful for the opportunity I have been given, I had the possibility to do and to experience things completely new to me, things that probably I would have never done in a different context.I wouldn't exchange the moments I spent in Melbourne for anything."
"i feel like i'm still there"
"i personally loved this trip to Aystralia because it wasn't just a trip to visit a place it was more like an experience. I love the fact that i've got an amazing new family and i really got along with them and for 2 weeks i became part of their lives. It was very amazing because i got to live their lives, see differences, similarities and what it's like to live in Australia. Because it was such a profound experience at first it was a little hard but that is what made it so special and in the end i was really, really sad to leave them."
"what i loved so much was....the people. I didn't expect all of them to be so caring and gentle, it was really nice talking with everyone.....I am definitely going to see it (Austrlia) again..... I love the programme, the possibilities it offered, the fact that the schoolallowed us to live in asutralia, to feel as if we were typical ozzies, going to school, living with the families, feeling a part of something bigger.... I called Australia my home for 2 weeks... because the people made me feel at home."
"Going to Melbourne changed my life. The family I found made me feel loved and truly appreciated. The people I met thanks to this trip I will carry forever in my heart. The moments shared, the laughter, the tears, everything was unforgettable. I really hope to be able to return one day, even if I am aware that it will never be the same again."
"Melbourne is an amazing city, entirely different from Bologna, but at the same time, it's filled with small similarities to our everyday life. During these two weeks, I met people who will always hold a special place in my heart, along with all the experiences I've had the opportunity to enjoy. I will forever be grateful for this trip, and I look forward to returning to this beautiful city one day."
"The trip has been a wonderful experience.The city with all its thrilling places and attractions. The people I met that made me feel loved and part of a family.A new culture, lifestyle, country that changed my view of the world.It really has been a wonderful experience and I look forward to returning to Melbourne in the future."
"This unique experience allowed me to connect to a new world and way of living. Everything from the activities to the hospitality of the host family made it precious and memorable"
