"Italy, and specifically Crema, is fantastic! The city is very charming, and I'm enjoying my experience with a host family (I have my own apartment, but they live below). The program itself is also going well. I teach hour-long English conversation/listening lessons to first and third-year students at the moment, and I'm having a lot of fun doing that. Eventually, they will have me teach CLIL, which involves teaching specific subject material in English. On the side, I do private lessons in order to live more comfortably, and this, too, is very enjoyable. I've been starting to travel around northern Italy, and I've found that in the last two months alone I have become very"comfortable with the pace of life here and the local culture. My Italian is also rapidly progressing too!"
"The SITE program has been one of my best experiences so far! I love everything about it and am having the time of my life! Not only do you get work experience, but it also teaches so many other important life lessons that can be applied to a number of different things. The workload isn't heavy either, so there's plenty of time to travel and make friends. I'm enjoying it so much so that I already am thinking about signing up again for next year!"
