Sophia Lin Sears, Summer 2017 Participant
I really enjoyed the location Carpi, Italy was a cute small Italian town full of rich history and not many tourists. I was truly able to observed and experience the Italian culture and lifestyle. I also loved my host family Davide, Barbara, Ester and Zoe they were the cutest family. They were so warm and welcoming, they made me feel apart of their family. The school I worked at was also wonderful place to teach because it was filled with kind passionate teachers and eager learners.

The best aspect of this program was the opportunity to connect with locals by living with a host family and teaching in a school. I was able to experience first hand the Italian culture and lifestyle. I loved walking to school with my host brother and then going over to my host grandmother's house for lunch each day. I felt as though I was one of the locals.

I loved this program! My favorited part was having the opportunity to teach abroad. It was such a wonderful experience to work with the students, learn about a different educational system, and also gain the perspective of what an international language learner may feel.
