This year I and other young people had the opportunity to be part of Erasmus + and visit 4 countries, namely Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Romania, divided into 4 groups.  We then had the opportunity to host groups of children from their respective cities, during the last week of March.  So we were able to test other types of cultures and lifestyles and at the same time we were able to show our habits and the territory in which we live and consequently monumental works known all over the world, such as the Bronzi di Riace in Reggio Calabria, the Castle Norman-Swabian of Vibo Valentia, or even art galleries such as the Limen or the creations of the Vibonese master Antonio La Gamba.
 We Italian kids immediately established a good relationship with foreign kids and it was an experience that allowed us to enrich ourselves on a cultural and personal level, it allowed us to broaden our horizons and open our minds more, improving our language skills and also learning idioms in different languages.  It was an experience that we would do again because it left us a lot and also it doesn't happen every day, it allowed us to break away from our routine and have a week where we could have fun and at the same time learn. All this made us much more independent and responsible, so we would recommend this experience to all children, even if for a short time.

A wonderful experience

Working on an Erasmus project gave me the opportunity to learn many things about foreign countries.
I have learned to appreciate other cultures and I have understood that it is important to know and be known.
I hope to take part in future Erasmus+ projects.
It was a great experience.

It was a pleasure to host boys and girls from different parts of Europe here with us! It's always nice to have the opportunity to get to know different cultures and lifestyles. The guys were very nice and we had a great time together.

Hello everybody,
Today we'd like to talk about our Erasmus experience in Marchena, Spain. At the beginning we were a bit concerned about traveling during this difficult moment, but we decided not to miss this chance and we left a few days before the scheduled departure in order to take the best of this wonderful opportunity. Definitely the Erasmus + is an experience that we would like to do again. 
We didn't know each other before this trip we met for the first time at the airport and that was the beginning of a wonderful friendship and of an amazing adventure. 
We really enjoyed the time spent together, people were very friendly and welcoming. We learnt customs and tradition about the other countries (Turkey, Spain, Romania), also the typical food, their habits and some information about their nations. It was very beautiful to connect with other people from different countries by talking in English because, even if we are from different places, we are all the same. This experience has enriched us both as people and as student, it had many positive aspects, for example, we could train our English and Spanish too or we could see that the famous stereotypes about others countries aren't always true. We shouldn't have any negative ideas before knowing someone. The most important thing we learnt was to integrate with completely different people.
