RafaI was very excited and eager about coming to Ireland. So far, my adventure has been very enjoyable, many things have happened.
Initially I was a little homesick. I missed my family but with the help of my host family I started to feel better and every day I was a little less sad. When I started school, everything improved and I was a lot happier. I started going to St. Colmans school in Fermoy. Fermoy is a town half an hour from Cork. It is a very quiet town but because we are close to Cork I often go to different places with my family.

At school I have a great time, we do various classes, they provided us with a locker to keep my books safe and I like that we must wear a uniform every day, it means I don’t have to worry about clothes. I also find it very comfortable. I have already made friends in school and during break time we play hurling and we talk. I also spend lunch time with them. I am already a specialist in various types of wraps. At school I have started playing soccer and basketball. This has allowed me to make more friends and speak more English. I love this.

I am really happy with my host family. They take very good care of me. I enjoy playing soccer with the children I live with. There’s a field close to the house that we go to play football in regularly. We also enjoy trips to the cinema and every weekend we take a trip to a different place, I am seeing a lot of Ireland. The trip to Dublin was very funny, I liked it a lot.

I really like soccer a lot and they do too so it’s good. We watch matches in the Irish league and Premier League on Saturday afternoons. I also really like the food over here.

My time in Ireland is now passing very quickly, I cannot quite believe that I have been here two months already and loving every minute of it.
