How does Dinehome work?
Dinehome allows you to discover a new culture and speak a foreign language in a familiar and hospitable environment. Families and students are carefully paired and dine together once a week.
It is an amazing opportunity that you cannot let pass. You get the chance to learn about the Italian’s way of life and practice your Italian.
It's a great opportunity to meet nice people, to improve language skills and to get to know the Italian kitchen.
Take the opportunity if you can, it's a fantastic experience and really adds to the year abroad.
This is the special and very good service and opportunity to spend time with Italian families offered be Dinehome.
I would recommend it for making connections with local families in Italy.
It is a great cultural experience that I would recommend.
It's an amazing experience to exchange culture and share conversation with people you would have never met if it wasn't for this program!
Such a great first-hand experience. My host family was so kind and open to meeting me. Every dinner has been a great experience!
It’s a great opportunity to practice Italian in a nice, homey atmosphere and learn more about Italian culture from a family.
I am spending most of the time at school, speaking English and surrounded by americans. There are days I forget that I live in Italy, because I do not get to interact to any Italians.
I realize that by just roaming around the city I won't be able to make a better connection to it as compared to having lively chats with people who live here.
As an international student in Bologna it is easy to rest inside the "Erasmus bubble" and lose any contact to locals. I am a curious person, always looking for new experiences and adventures.
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.
I love Italian culture and I would like to meet new people and see a typical family in Italia.
The perfect way to meet an authentic Italian family.
It seems to be difficult to get to know the real Bologna being an Erasmus student. I am very interested in seeing how a real Bolognese family lives.
I'd love to become familiar with an Italian family in a home environment, and have an opportunity to practice and better my Italian, or help others with their English if they should so desire.
It is lovely to spend some time in a family environment and get to known some locals so that I can feel at home when I miss my own family!
DineHome is a wonderful idea to get in touch with the Italian language, food and culture and there is no better way to get to know it than with an Italian family.
