STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM FEATURES

Both Summer and Semester Programs include:

ITALIAN LANGUAGE COURSES
International Student Body
Italian language courses are offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced and skills perfection. Classes are made up of a maximum of 12 students, grouped according to their level of communication skills in Italian. University program students are integrated into classes with other students at the school, creating multinational classrooms in which Italian is the common language. Language classes are based on the communicative approach, which centers on the student, stressing the student’s communicative needs and the development of cognitive abilities, rather than applying a more formal, analytical style of instruction. The full range of language skills are addressed: listening, speaking, reading, writing.

All courses are taught by highly trained instructors specializing in the teaching of Italian as a foreign language. The teaching staff is directed by a curriculum coordinator, who also supervises the development of texts and continually updated teaching materials. A test is administered weekly to monitor each student’s progress. At the end of the course, students are given an oral exam to test their communicative competency – their listening and reading comprehension, oral expression and pronunciation.

CULTURAL STUDIES COMPONENT

Castello di Bracciano
Throughout the length of their stay, students participate in a cultural program outside the language classroom. This includes seminars, lectures, guided tours and field trips covering a range of subjects: Italian history, history of art, architecture, cinema, music, opera, theater and literature, as well as Italian cooking and wines. Excursions to other cities of interest are offered throughout the program: Orvieto, Naples and Pompeii, Florence, Siena, etc.

CONVERSATION EXCHANGE
Throughout the program, all students can take part in our unique TANDEM conversation exchange with a native Italian speaker. This language exchange facilitates comprehension and expands vocabulary, while providing the opportunity to practice real conversation outside the classroom with a native speaker.

Accommodation in Rome

TAILOR MADE PROGRAMS

Torre di Babele works with academic institutions to design specific study abroad programs to meet requirements for both credit and non-credit courses. Universities are welcome to propose programs to meet their department requirements, and these can be planned and implemented throughout the year. Torre di Babele offers language courses at all levels, cultural studies programs, and also provides visiting faculty with classroom and office facilities for courses they choose to conduct themselves.

San Lorenzo fuore le Mure

In addition to language studies, the school designs courses covering content areas ranging from Italian literature to Italian cinema and the film industry, to interior and landscape design, as well as a host of other subject areas to further students’ knowledge of Italian culture.
