Truly one of the best experiences of my life. I had been wanting to come to the UK ever since I was 10 so this was a dream come true. At first I was a bit scared that Cardiff wouldn’t meet my expectations but it absolutely surpassed them. I was also worried about having to stay with a family I didn’t know, but I felt welcomed and well received from day 1.
I had so much fun with Sophie and the rest of the family. Some of my favourite activities were the visits to Cardiff Castle, St. Fagans and Principality stadium. However, I also enjoyed walking along the Taff and all the little independent shops in the city’s arcades. Despite doing classes in the morning and activities in the afternoon, I still had plenty of free time, which is always quite nice.
Regarding the tuition work and the classes, I feel that I have learned a lot since I came here and I have improved in every way I aimed to do so. I loved working with Sophie and the fact that the lectures were adapted to my needs and interests.
I learned about British and Welsh culture and history, made new friends… All in all, I had a wonderful time and I know I will remember this experience for the rest of my life and I hope to return some day.
