Life and Language in Rome

When in Rome do as Romans do!

This old adage encapsulates the experience offered by our summer language study-abroad program in Rome. Students live with local families and take classes every day in the historic heart of the eternal city to gain a full immersion experience in the Italian language and culture. After classes students explore the city, do sigh-seeing with Dr. Romani (a native of Rome), visiting the famous and less-known local sites, from the Colosseum, the Vatican Church and Museum, and the Trevi Fountain, to the neighborhoods outside of the Aurelian walls of Trastevere and Testaccio. In addition, there will be a weekend excursion to Siena in Tuscany. A main goal of this program is to provide students with tools and skills that allow them to develop a deeper understanding of Italy, its culture and lifestyle.
