I had to do a basic course in Italian at the start of the semester and it was really helpful however, the teacher only spoke in Italian and when it came to exams it was really hard to know what was going on especially when i did not know any Italian before i went to Italy and some people in the class did so they were teaching everyone at the same level which i don't think was the best thing to do.

Most of the Italians didnīt speak English, so I was almost forced to learn Italian, which was a good thing of course. At first, although, it felt difficult, but with time it became easier. I think I might have even learned more Italian if I would have lived outside the campus residence. Now I just used my English skills when interacting with other international students.

All the classes were in english, so I really did not have any difficulties. Even though english is not my native language I am used to classes in english from my home university. And also I got the chance to improve my english in forms of vocabulary and pronunciation and so on...which is of course very useful!

Was the first time I took courses in other lenguage than spanish, the everyday communication with friends, roomates, teachers and students was a factor that pushes you to learn and improve the lenguage. You must use all the knowledge you have adquired in that lenguage in order to fit inside the academic life.

classes were provided when we first arrived and were at varying degrees of difficulty. Language on campus and in classes was never a problem, the international students all spoke amazing english as did the teachers.
