We know you came here hungry for new experiences and we want you to experience Italian culture, for real.
With Dinehome you will have the opportunity to meet local families and share your language and culture with them.
Being a host student with Dinehome means having dinner together with an Italian family once a week.
Dinner is held at the family's home and is kindly offered by the family
. You will always visit the same family every week: the family-student combination is fixed so that you can get to know each other better week after week and for an optimal experience, we recommend that you have at least ten dinners together.
Remember that Dinehome is a personal experience, so it is not possible to attend dinners with friends or boyfriends.
Usually Italian families also host you to practice your language/English, so during the dinners you will also have to speak English/your language and not only Italian!
Italian families participating in Dinehome would like to know and
mature by opening up to new values with a spirit of adaptation.
From a logistical point of view, families can be easily reached on foot, by bus or by train.
Listen to what some students who are already participating have to say!
"The best thing a student can get from the Dinehome program is the opportunity to get to know and build a relationship with someone they wouldn't otherwise know."
"I consider it a perfect way to get in touch with Italians, to learn something about their culture, to improve the language and spend pleasant evenings with delicious food".
"Personally, the best thing I got from this experience was the friendship with my host family, which I know will last a long time."
