Next February I will be going to live in Monteforte, Italy, as an exchange student for five months.
When I first get to Italy I have a four day orientation in Rome where I get to sightsee and take language classes. I have been learning Italian all year by correspondence to help me at school and to make friends.
I will be living with my host sister Allegra and mother Fiorella. Allegra is one year older than me and I have been speaking to her on facebook and over the phone.
To get into exchange with WEP (World Exchange Program) I had to have a c grade average and pass an interview to make sure that I was suitable for the program. I was so excited when I got accepted and when I got my host family!
