Summer 2017 Participant
The most rewarding elements of this program and seeing how happy the Italian students are that they have an American teacher in their classroom. They have been looking forward for us to come for months and as soon as I walked in a was receiving hugs and big smiles. They would give their full attention and all effort into learning english because it is very important to them. Any little thing that you teach or do for them means the world to them.

Lauren Margaret Hotchkiss, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this experience was living with a host family. Being completely immersed into the culture living with a true Italian family gave me a new perspective of their culture as well as helped me grow as an individual. It gave me a clear glimpse of what their daily lives were. I was able to compare and contrast our two cultures to one another in ways they are similar or different. Not only did I get exposed to their culture and language but I also formed a great relationship with my host parents and brother. It was a once in a life time experience!!

By the last week I began to understand why I chose this program in the first place, not only did I grow as a person, but I will forever be a better teacher because of my time abroad.
