For the first time in my life, I took the plane in October this year. This chance was given to me by the Comenius project.
I went to Estonia with my teacher, the nurse and two of my friends. I was excited but a little bit anxious because it was the first time I had left my family and I was all moved. During the journey I was housed in Yohanna’s home. At the beginning, I was scared because I had never been far away from home. However, I had to be adaptable there. Yohanna’s mother took care of me. It was very nice.
This experience presents many benefits for me. First of all, I became more sociable since I had to express myself in a foreign country. Obviously, most of those strangers were of the same age as me, so the communication was easier. Also, I think that my English has improved. On the top of that, owing to the Comenius project it was a concrete opportunity for me to improve my English. I didn’t have any help such as a dictionary or my English teacher. Moreover I met a lot of people and thanks to the activities proposed, I really enjoyed Estonia.
As a conclusion, this first trip was an experience that I will remember the rest of my life. It was a good memory. And today, more than ever, I would like to travel, to discover others foreign countries to enlarge my horizon.
