Program Reviews:
Summer - Two Months 2012 Participant
The most rewarding, by far, includes the culture element and the actual school itself.

Christopher W Rice, Summer - Two Months 2015 Participant
The elements that I found most rewarding were my interactions with my host family and learning how to get around in Florence using the language skills that I learned in class.

Christina E Ricci, Summer - One Month 2017 Participant
I found the day-to-day activities most rewarding; the days when we had nothing planned in particular, just walking around and stumbling upon incredible sights.
