    Give at least two other reasons why you want to study abroad: I would like to study abroad for different reasons: first of all I think I'll be a completely different person after this experience; I'll grew up a lot, I'll be much more mature, indipendent, I'll have a great ability to adapt. Then this exchange year will allow me to know myself much better and maybe to have clearer ideas about my future. But that's not all: during this year I'll know a lot of new people and probably I'll make new friends. Also I can't wait to know my host family and share with them unforgettable moments. Surely every single day of an exchange year I'll learn something new and I'll live experiences that I'll always carry with me.
