Campers study a foreign language (English or Italian) and learn about the historical and cultural heritage of Rome while living the life of their Roman peers. Each day is loaded with adventure and discovery as they stroll past piazzas, gaze up through the oculus of the Pantheon, shop around the Spanish Steps, and eat local street food in Testaccio.
The academic program is broken down into two segments: 1) Language Learning, and 2) Cultural Education. Campers can choose between English or Italian and every morning they will participate in a lesson part of their 10-hour weeklong language course. Participants are tested upon arrival to evaluate their level and placed accordingly in small classes that are dynamic, engaging and highly communicative.
Following the language classes, all campers join the Cultural Education classes which are complementary to the program and aim at introducing and debating the cultural topic of the day, from ancient Rome to various aspects of current roman life.
Every afternoon our city campers will set off to discover a cultural and/or historical aspect of Rome. Moving through the city as a group of friends and led by our group leaders and teachers, students will be taken to visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, led on a food market visit culminating in a cooking class, or
shopping for the latest fashion ending in the best ice cream parlor in town.
In the evening our kids will discover more of the roman life and way of life… So much in Italy revolves around food and Rome has its very own traditions that seem to remain unscathed by the latest trends and fashion.
