Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

In short? The best vacation. I was for the first time alone in a foreign country and we all know that that is always the best way to learn a foreign language. It was great to meet other students from all over the world. The istitute has students from any corner of the globe and a very lively, international community. I made a lot of new friendships, many of which I'm still in contact with. I really liked Florence and it wasn't my first time there and certainly not the last. I'm certainly planning to go back soon enough!
