A great experience for Elisa and Kinga
I am Elisa Cotognini and I took part in the Erasmus plus DCeS project in November 2021, during the first mobility. I went to Poland, my host was a girl, Kinga Kwapsiz; from day one we created a really fun friendship. Kinga came to Italy in April 2022 during the Italian mobility; we were happy because we were finally together after a long time. At the same time we were sad because we thought we would never see each other again.The day she left we promised each other we would meet in the summer and it happened. From 2nd to 9th August Kinga came to Italy.
I hosted her and we had a lot of fun; the first day I went to Bologna airport to pick her up, when we got home we went out because it was my best friend’s birthday. The following days we had my best friend’s birthday party so we spent time with my friends.I wanted to show her other villages besides Pontassieve or Florence, so we went to Vicchio where we saw the lake and the town center. We went to Bilancino lake and we really enjoyed it. On Saturday night we were in Florence with my friends, ate pizza and walked around the city center until evening.We went to Pontassieve several times with my friends and we always went to yoghurt shop because Kinga loves it.We really enjoyed it. We were and are really happy to have created a true friendship thanks to an Erasmus + project.
It helped our English. We noticed that our English has improved since the first time we met and we have learned to speak faster. We recommend an experience like this to everyone, if you are not shy in speaking, you will learn a lot of new words!
