La mia esperienza ad Arezzo è stata veramente meravigliosa . Arezzo è una città molto bella, i suoi dintorni sono interessanti, si possono visitare tante altre città vicine. E poi, la scuola è molto piacevole, gli insegnanti gentili e sempre pronti per aiutare su qualsiasi dubbio. Mi piacerebbe tornare presto, c'è tanto da vedere e imparare e così poco tempo.
