While Italian majors are required to study in Italy, all students are encouraged to explore this opportunity to live and study in the country with the highest number of Unesco World Heritage sites.
SUMMER Course IN ITALY
STUDY IN FIESOLE
The Department of Italian at Georgetown is excited to offer its first summer course in Italy from June 5 to July 11, 2018. This 6-credit third-semester language course will take place at Georgetown’s very own Villa Le Balze in Fiesole which is situated in the beautiful hills overlooking Florence, just minutes from the city center. Classes will be held at the Villa each day and through dynamic and interactive lessons that focus on culturally salient and contemporary topics, this intensive course will expand and refine grammar structures and vocabulary already acquired during the first year of language study. Students will live with local host families in Fiesole for the duration of the program to enhance their experience of authentic daily life in Italy, and to allow them to progress more quickly in their listening comprehension and spoken Italian. A variety of activities will be included such as day-trips to visit the artistic and historical gems of Florence, excursions to Siena and Bologna, guest lectures by local academics, and a hands-on cooking class.
Students will live with local families for the duration of the program to enhance their experience of authentic daily life in Italy.
