AmeriSpan's Program for Italian Teachers in Rome, Italy is for Italian teachers who want to not only to improve methodology and educational theory, but also gain in-depth cultural training.
The program includes lectures and workshops, taught entirely in Italian, that allow teachers to experience a diverse range of teaching techniques through interactive group training, as well as extensive classroom observation. Outside the classroom, specialized activities and excursions will provide teachers with relevant and first-hand cultural experience.
Rome is located in the middle of Italy on its western coast, about 20km inland. The sense of history, art, and architecture in Rome is all-embracing, and quite simply a feast for the eyes. There is a hectic vibrancy of anarchic traffic, piazzas, fountains, and fabulous restaurants. The historic city center is quite small and most of the major sights are within a reasonable distance of the central railway station.
Known for its diverse regions, rich culture, and fabulous food, boot-shaped Italy possesses perhaps the most instantly identifiable physical shape of any country in the world. You can visit Roman ruins, gawk at Renaissance art, stay in tiny hill towns, ski the Alps, explore the canals of Venice, and see more churches than you can imagine. Naturally, you can indulge in the elementary pleasures of good food, improving your wardrobe, and seeking out "la dolce vita." From its beaches to its Alpine mountains, Italy vibrates with a special soul that is reflected in its people, music, and art.
