I was a volunteer of EVS from September 2017 till June 2018 in Italy. My project took place at secodary school in Bisceglie and I lived in a town Molfetta neraby with other volunteers.
The aim of the project was to communicate and so motivate children to use and learn English language and also help children to get know other cultures. I was working with another volunteer with who I cooperated during creating activities and projects.
Our usual morning started at 8:15 and finished at 13:15 and it was composed of English lessons, during which we mostly played linguistic games with children, of Italian and art lessons. We were included also in other school activities and projects which took place mainly in the afternoon. At the end of the school year, we went on some school trips as well. On the whole, working at school was interesting and fun.
During this project, I met great people and learnt a lot about Italian culture, learnt to work better with children, to be initiative and not to be afraid to communicate. EVS has also helped me to clarify my priorities and decide what to do next.
I recommend EVS to everyone.
