    Accelerated Italian on the Amalfi Coast

  • ITAL 1A

    Special Session - June 30 - August 3, 2019

    Learn Italian while exploring the beautiful town of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The program will be hosted by Sant'Anna Institute, where you will take accelerated Italian, completing one year of university level Italian in five weeks. This fast pace will allow you to acquire a rapid mastery of grammar and syntax, providing basic knowledge of Italian structure in one summer session. We will explore the local community and practice Italian in the cafes, farmer markets, and vibrant streets of Sorrento.  We will also travel to the famous ruins of Pompeii, visit the beautiful island of Capri, learn to make gelato, and try to master Mediterranean cooking.
