Students who choose to go to Italy for High School Abroad get the full immersive experience into the Italian language and culture. From the host families to the Italian high school classes, students get the opportunity to learn and practice Italian first-hand.
Italy is one of the few high school abroad locations that does NOT require any previous language experience – complete beginners welcome! But of course, you’re going to want to learn Italian!
Apps for learning Italian
Recently, one of our current students in Italy, Dawson, provided this helpful list of mobile apps for students to learn and practice Italian before departing and while on-program.
This app has detailed explanations, including for verbs and pronunciation. It also has quizzes and mobile flashcards.
We encourage all of our students to take initiative in their own learning, and these apps are a great place to start. Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive, but we hope it will be helpful for you to start your Italian language journey. If you have any other recommendations to practice your Italian, feel free to drop them in the comments!
