In Italy

Once in Italy, your host family will pick you up from the airport or train station. They’ll bring you to their home and help you get oriented to your new environmnent and host children. You’ll also work with your family to set up a tutoring schedule and they can show you how to get around your neighborhood, where to go, and what to see!

Throughout your program, our international partner will be available to ensure your transition is smooth and fun. They can recommend language classes (if you’re interested) and other activities to increase your engagement with Italian culture.

After Your Program

As an InterExchange alumni you’ll continue to have access to benefits like our Language Partner Program, so you can keep working on your Italian with a native speaker. Our staff remain available to you for post-program support when you need it!
