A Special Place
Sorrento, Fall 2011
December 12, 2011

All good things must come to an end, as is our Sorentine Semester. For both Kayla and I this semester has turned out to be something neither of us could have imagined. I remember the first day when I found out that she was the only other student in the program. At first we were tentative about living together and being the only two people in all our classes, but in the end we each made a life long friend. We’ve had incredible adventures throughout Europe together, braved the strange cultural differences together and we’ve learned so much from one another. When we tell people we’re the only two students they either say 1. you’re lucky you get along or 2. your lucky you’re not the only student. I don’t how I would have done this semester without her.

Having all Italian teachers was challenging to say the least. It was interesting yet difficult to learn under such different techniques. All the classes were allot of work but also a good amount of fun. With the student body consisting of two people, class schedules were more flexible and field trip sites were allot more accessible. Sorrento Lingue is a great and blossoming school and to anyone who is headed there, get ready for quite the experience.

It’s sad to say goodbye but at the same time I’m ready to move on. Sorrento will always be a special place and I definitely plan to visit in the near future.
