Antonette’s Experience Abroad!

Go do study abroad if it’s something you’ve been thinking about! It’s worth the effort to start looking into what you need to do ahead of time, attend information sessions, and talk to the professors. The application process isn’t as complicated as you might think, just give yourself enough time so you time to plan and get things sent.

I did study abroad in Siena after 4th year italian because I was nervous about getting around with the language. But there are classes for students of all levels. If you want to take specific culture courses though, it does help to have an intermediate knowledge of Italian because, as far as I know, they are all taught in Italian.
I enjoyed the Italian classes at Western so studying Italian language and culture – in Italy – was awesome. I was lucky to meet great people, and got to see some of Italy’s beautiful places. Vale la pena di progettare, e’ una bellissima esperienza.

Alcune righe che ho scritto un giorno a Siena:
fare le vasche: (slang) fare un passeggiare, guardare, incontrare altre persone. Questa e’ una cosa che mi piace qui a Siena perche’ e’ una bellissima citta’. Spesso per la strada “faccendo le vasche”, incontro altri studenti, compagini di classe… 15 minuti per raggiungere il Piazza del Campo dal posto mio – si puo’ prendere un gelato e sedersi e guardare la gente che passa. E’ bello. Oggi ho fatto un’esame per la classe di cultura. non so com’e’ andata. Non ero sicuro come si deve rispondere… Cerano due domande sole: 1. Illustrare la differenza tra il palio alla lunga e il palio alla tonda. 2. Che cos’e’ l’importanza delle contrade nella vita dei Senesi oggi? Hmm… va be’, e’ ora di dormire.
