“I have officially been in Siracusa, Sicily, for over a month. The time is already flying by with new people and experiences. My language progression has improved drastically since my last post. I now understand about 83% of what I hear, and am able to respond. It is becoming easier and easier to express myself, and I am now even able to joke around with native Italian speakers! It is such an amazing feeling, because it was starting to feel very lonely for me.”
That’s the start of the latest blog post fro Michaela Rosetti, our Rotary Youth Exchange student who is spending an academic year in Syracuse.
