Last month  April I had the opportunity to enjoy an Erasmus stay in Thiene, Veneto, Italy, working at a flower shop (Carollo Fiori) and also attending different classes at the ITET Aulo Ceccato school. I learned a lot from this experience, such as being more independent, more confident and developing many social skills. Although I learned a lot about the language during this stay, I am currently continuing to study Italian in order to further improve my level.

As for the host family, I felt very good there, they made sure that I felt comfortable there and that I lived their usual way of life, thanks to this I was able to see first-hand the cultural differences. I was able to make very good friends who I keep in touch with every day and I hope to see them soon.

On the other hand, I was doing an internship at a company that, among other things, is responsible for the sale of plants, flowers and  flower bouquets.

During my stay at Carollo Fiori I had the opportunity to see the way a floral company works and  a sector that I had not previously delved into.

In this company I found myself in some situations in which I had to hold conversations in a non-native language, since no one in the company knew my language, this experience has helped me  to be more decisive and grow as a person. Thanks to the support of my colleagues and my interest, I was able to adapt perfectly to this challenging situation.

In conclusion, it has been a very good experience that I would repeat without a doubt, I encourage everyone who has the opportunity to participate in an Erasmus course to do so. I am very grateful and happy with all the people who have been sharing with me this enriching experience.

During my Erasmus stay  in Thiene (Italy) I was hosted by a very generous and kind family, they taught me a lot about Italian culture, I met many friends thanks to their daughter , who arranged the outings very well with my two schoolmates, Estel and David, who were hosted by other two families.

The internship I did was at a company called Genero Anna, which is dedicated to the marketing of products such as printers, cash tills, labeling machines, etc.

I helped with translating manuals with the help of a specific translator from a supplier’s manual and also I attended to some company meetings.

I really loved the experience, I would definitely do it again, I met some really lovely people and had a great time with them all, thanks to all of them.

Last month I had the opportunity to participate in an Erasmus course in Italy, Specifically in the town of Calvene, located in the Veneto region. This experience has been incredibly enriching for me, both personally and academically. During my stay, I was able to immerse myself in the Italian culture and learn many new things.

In Calvene, I enjoyed the local life and met very friendly and welcoming people. The gastronomy, the traditional festivals and the history of the place have allowed me to better understand the cultural richness of this region. Additionally, this experience has helped me improve my Italian language skills and develop a greater appreciation for cultural differences.

In summary, my month at Calvene has been an unforgettable experience that opened my mind and provided me with learnings that will be with me forever.

I did my internship in Thiene, in a shop called Munari. This store is known for its wide variety of products, especially for babies and toddlers. At Munari, you can find everything from clothes and toys to essential baby care accessories.

My internship at Munari was very enriching. I learned a lot about running a store, dealing with customers and the inner workings in retail. Also, I was able to learn more about specialized baby products, which was very interesting and educational for me.

This experience not only allowed me to improve my professional skills, but also gave me valuable insight into the world of retail and the importance of providing quality products for children and their families.

A fundamental part of my Erasmus experience in Italy has been  meeting and socializing with new people and the new friendships I have made. In Calvene and Thiene, I had the opportunity to meet incredible people with whom I shared unforgettable moments. We went out partying, exploring the vibrant Italian nightlife, which was always full of energy and good vibes.

Going out for drinks with my new friends was one of the most fun activities. We enjoyed Italian appetizers, trying various local specialties while chatting and getting to know each other better. These outings were not only a way for us to relax after practical classes, but also an opportunity to integrate myself more into the Italian culture and practice the language in an informal context.

These experiences made my time in Italy even more special. Laughs, conversations and moments shared with my new friends are memories I will carry with me forever. Without a doubt, this social part of Erasmus greatly enriched my stay, making it more complete and memorable.

In conclusion, I would like to recommend everyone who has the opportunity to participate in an Erasmus program to do so without hesitation. This experience has undoubtedly been one of the most enriching and memorable in my life. I have learned a lot both academically and personally, and had the opportunity to immerse myself in a different culture, make new friends and have unforgettable memories.

Erasmus is not just an academic experience; it is an opportunity to grow as a person and to develop skills that will be valuable for your future. So, if you ever consider participating in this program, I encourage you to do so. You will not only take away knowledge and experiences, but also a lot of good times that will accompany you forever.

I hope that my experience has inspired you to consider Erasmus as a possibility in your academic and personal path.
