The class 4 F looking for America...
on the deck of the "Star of India", 
in S. Diego, California

From 3rd to 17th November 2002 22 Italian students of the class 4 F of Liceo Linguistico visited our sister school Hill Top High School of Chula Vista, California. After their stay in California, the students spent three days in New York.
All the students were welcomed with sincere warmth by their host families, and at the moment of leaving their American parents, brothers and sisters many tears were shed. Family life gave them the opportunity to get to know habits, ideas, traditions, values, food of the host country and forget the usual stereotypes.
During their stay the students attended regularly school and were able to notice the differences between the Italian and American school system. 
The whole experience was also extremely useful for our students' knowledge of English, as it was the only communication means they had.
The conclusion was a three-day visit of New York, where the group stayed in small apartments in Manhattan, near Central Park. 
We visited the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero, Chinatown, Fifth Avenue, Times Square, the Rockefeller Centre, the Metropolitan Museum, Central Park, Brooklyn, Seaport Village, the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art, the American Museum of Natural History.
