Summer - One Month 2012 Participant
Don't limit yourself, just keep exploring!

Kristen Adrianna Larsen, Summer - Two Months 2013 Participant
My favorite part was when I went down to southern Italy (Positano, Capri, Anacapri, Sorrento, Napoli) and got to swim in the Blue Grotto and hike through Pompeii. It was also cool to make friendships with natives that will last a lifetime and to be able to go find my Italian relatives in Torino and speak Italian with them.

Summer - One Month 2018 Participant
Don't be afraid of messing up when you speak, any attempts to use the language will help you improve your Italian.
