Good morning, I'm writing as the teacher responsible for cultural and linguistic exchanges at "Liceo Scientifico Ippolito Nievo" - Padova - Italy.
We have a long tradition of school exchanges with Germany, France and Spain, and we'd like to widen our experience getting in touch with an Australian school. I’ve seen from your curriculum that Italian is included among the subjects at your school, so you might be interested in our proposal.
We could come to Australia and stay at some of your students’ families for 2 or 3 weeks in the period from the beginning of July to the end of August, and you could come to Italy and stay at our students’ families any time from October to April (except for Christmas and Easter holidays).
Our pupils (aged 14 to 18) have studied English since primary school. We live in a historic town 40 minutes drive from Venice, so we think we could offer you many interesting things to do and see both in the city and in the surroundings, and also motivated students and friendly host families. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information if you are interested in the proposal or if you know another school which might be.
Waiting for your reply
