Autumn C Rodriguez, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was being able to explore a new country with the comfort of new and old friends. Carpi was small enough that on free afternoons, we were able to message each other and meet at the city square for an afternoon of shopping or gelato! It also had some a small town feel that my Italian teachers were able to tell me things they found interesting in Carpi as well.

My favorite part of this program was getting emerged in the cultural completely. I learned so much from he new experiences I had.

Autumn C Rodriguez, Summer 2017 Participant
The most rewarding part of the program was being in the schools. I did not speak an ounce of Italian before going this program, but my host family and teachers were so understanding and really taught me a lot about the culture but even more than that my students still kissed and hugged me even though I was this strange person in their classroom who sounded probably so silly to them. With this program I truly got to see what English Language Learners in American classrooms go through.
