benefits for all

Why it works:

It is easy to break the ice and get to know each other when there is a strong common interest in having a mutual linguistic and cultural exchange. Being in a family context will facilitate this!

This is Veronica, a mum in Bologna: she had dinner with Miyu from Japan 🇯🇵

"It was really nice to talk to her about her origins, the "simplicity" of Japanese writing and the colourful customs of our country. Seeing my kids talking to her in English as if she were a friend they had known for a long time helped us to understand how many possibilities there are for so many young people today, and how simple it can be to seize them!"

Here is Rohit, a student from Pakistan: he had dinner with Debora and her family🇮🇹

"It was a really amazing experience, because I could practice my English and Italian skills, learn a lot of typical dishes, talk about the Italian culture and show them my culture as well."

We like to meet foreign students both for the opportunity to speak English and for the curiosity to learn about cultures other than our own.

We think it is useful for the student to feel at home in a country that is not their own and for us adults, but especially for our son, to experience globalisation in practice.

It is an exciting experience that brings the world home to you.

We feel like citizens of the world and we consider openness towards foreign young students a great source of mutual enrichment.

I participate in order to improve the language and get to know new cultures, but mainly as an incentive for my children to travel and undertake such experiences.

An experience to do... great organisation and we are lucky to have such a lovely host.

Simon A.

I'd like to develop my Italian, and build a connection to people in Bologna to better understand the city I'm living in. I live in a bubble of foreign students, and it'd be great to escape from that.

Take the opportunity if you can, it's a fantastic experience and really adds to the year abroad.

A pleasant opportunity to eat in the company of foreign guests who open a window on the world of youth and different ways of thinking.

Through DineHome, I hope to find the little known nooks and corners of the town, the stories of childhoods spent here.

It's an amazing experience to exchange culture and share conversation with people you would have never met if it wasn't for this programme!
