The 2018 Tuscany Summer Program is an Italian Language immersion vacation designed for students ages 14 to 21 years, in group of 18 participants.
The Italian program of the Summer camp engages students in a range of activities, all conducted in Italian, and approaches learning through play.
The Program incorporates games, songs, arts and crafts, drama, readings, and numerous others, all of which are aimed at strengthening and increasing knowledge of the Language. Lessons will be also focused on historical, cultural, natural aspects of the cities visited during the trip.
Since there will be diverse proficiency levels, our goal is to send everyone home with at least basic Italian survival phrases and vocabulary and for the intermediate/advanced level to increase Italian language and Culture. The linguistic activities of days will be further developed to reinforce what has been learned and practiced during the various activities, games and free time.
At the end of the Course each participant will receive a Certificate of the Language level achieved.
(Language Classes are also available for adults and families traveling with the students!)
