Personal comments:
This has been, by far, the best experience of my life. The whole idea of living in such a beautiful country and an amazing city made me realize how much the world has to offer. I have come to appreciate art, literature, and the culture.

Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.

Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities, Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
My most enjoyable experiences were spent traveling the country. Not only are the travel accomodations reasonable, the people were kind, and the scenery was beautiful. My most memorable experiences was the Andrea Bocelli concert in Pisa, the Eros Ramozzotti concert in the Olympic Stadium, and hiking through Cinqueterra.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
I felt language courses in the language of the host country were extremely helpful. It was easier to pick up on speech patterns, dialects, etc. when surrounded by it daily. The other course I enjoyed was the history course. Because Rome is a city rich with culture, history, and art it was amazing to see what I was learning about first hand.



My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Overall
Personal comments:
More language classes focusing on interaction with people in the actual city/country instead of what is taught strictly in the classroom setting.

Language difficulties

KEY:

I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: Italian
Was learning Italian a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Italian
How much did you improve your Italian?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
Since I am so interested in the Italian culture, I wanted to make sure I would learn as much as I could living in Rome. I wanted to learn all the slang and common pharses to fit as a native.

The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
None
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Traveling from city to city or from country to country for that matter is cheaper because most of it can be done by train. Hostile or apartments are available for rent. Because I dinner was not included as part of our accomodations food was a good part of my expenses.
Food, Nightlife: was more expensive than at home.
Overall, Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Travel, Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
Shopping in Italy can be addictive, be sure to get your tax back, and make the big purchases towards the end of your trip.

I wish I had known...
The weather. A dry heat, it does get somewhat chilly. Find a conversation partner that is a native speaker, or that lives in your host city. I was given opportunities and shown places that are interesting instead of normal tourist attractions. A must.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!

Traveled
Improved language skills

Personal recommendation:
I was extremely happy with this university. They were extremely helpful, and made the experience more enjoyable. All of the teachers were able to speak the both Italy and English fluently, and they seemed to be as excited to have us, as we were to be there.



FINAL COMMENTS

The Let's Go Books can be helpful, but go there to learn. Submerse yourself in the people and the culture, and don't pollute the experience on expectations from home. You are going to experience a different style of living, and to understand a different culture, enjoy it!
