Study Abroad Italy is pleased to announce a new program in Italian Studies, offered in partnership with the International Center for Intercultural Exchange in Siena. This collaboration offers motivated students at all levels of Italian Language proficiency the opportunity to experience a “gentle full-immersion” program. Classroom work helps students to develop a greater confidence with the Italian language, while projects outside the classroom foster a deeper familiarity with Italian culture. To maximize cultural immersion, program participants are placed with Italian host families and these home-stay accommodations include full-board (three meals daily, seven days per week).
Siena is one of Tuscany’s most celebrated cities and has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Students who participate on SAI’s Italian Studies program will find themselves surrounded by the exquisite art, architecture and cultural treasures offered by Siena and her surroundings.
