Italian Summer Language Program or International Internship in Italy

It's time to really learn why Rome wasn't built in a day!

Roman life and language await you this summer! Instead of using a textbook to study Italian culture and language, why not go to the source and pay Italy a visit? Imagine strengthening your Italian language and intercultural communication skills as you order gelato from the very shops that made this creamy dessert so famous, or visiting Rome’s most fabled sites like the Coliseum, the Forum and St. Peter’s Basilica for your art and architecture studies.
