Why arrange an Italian school trip?
Get them talking!
Any linguist knows that the best way to get to grips with a language is to go to the country where it’s spoken and totally immerse yourself in it, using the language on an everyday basis. A school trip to Italy offers your students the opportunity to do just that.
No matter where you choose to visit, you can be certain that Italians will offer your students a friendly, warm welcome and will be pleased to encourage them to speak Italian with them.
And your students will love the experience of using their language skills not only to communicate on an everyday basis with Italians, but also to delve deeper into the rich Italian culture. They’ll return home from your Italian school trip with greater confidence in their language skills and a better understanding of how speaking foreign languages can open doors to incredible cultural experiences.
Immerse them in the Italian culture
Part of the great joy of being able to speak Italian is that it allows you to delve deeper into the rich Italian culture.
And on your Italian school trip, your students will love the opportunity to use their language skills to explore the culture.
In Naples, they’ll discover the food that put Italian cuisine on the map! They’ll find out how mozzarella is made, how olive oil is produced, what makes gelato so much creamier than normal ice cream and, of course, they can even enjoy a masterclass in pizza-making delivered by a real pizzaiolo!
In Florence, they can find out how this Tuscan city became the epicentre of the Renaissance. They’ll be able to explore the city’s famous art galleries and museums, including the Uffizi, the Palazzo Pitti and the Galleria dell’Accademia. Italy is a country of many different dialects – here they can discover how the work of famous Florentine poets like Dante led to this city’s dialect becoming the foundation for modern Italian.
An Italian trip to Venice offers students the opportunity to learn more about this once mighty maritime republic that is still considered one of the most beautiful cities on earth. With visits to the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Basilica and the Grand Canal, your students will love exploring this incredible city and its unique culture.
And, of course, an Italian trip to Rome offers your students a snapshot of Italy throughout the ages, from the Roman Empire to Fascism and Mussolini, and the modern, democratic state. As well as exploring the Eternal City, you can also visit the Vatican City, the world’s smallest sovereign state and the centre of Roman Catholicism.
