4e keer en weer even leuk

In nov 2015 was het mijn 4e keer op het Istituto Europeo.
Het welkom van Rinaldo en Fabrizio was hartverwarmend.
De school is niet groot, de locatie in Florence fantastisch , op de hoek van via Tornobuoni vlakbij de rivier de Arno.
De leerlingengroep is zeer gemengd van jong tot ouder.
Vaak is er muziek en operazang te horen van zangers/zangeressen, die in Italiaans leren zingen.
De staf is gemotiveerd.
Deze keer had ik 6 ochtenden privéles van Gemma Godi.
Godi is dus vertaald:geniet of enjoy!
Zij deed haar naam eer aan.zij was fantastisch en ik heb van haar lessen genoten.
De week is omgevlogen en ik heb weer heel veel bijgeleerd.
Een aanrader voor iedereen, die Italiaans wil leren spreken en ook schrijven, en dat in zo'n mooie stad als Florence.

Learning by doing

Am ersten Tag meines Aufenthalts in Florenz konnte ich nur wenige Grundzüge der italienischen Sprache. Da die Lehrerinnen immer nur italienisch gesprochen haben, konnte ich mich schon nach kurzer Zeit viel besser zurecht finden. So lernte ich die italienische Sprache um einiges schneller und fand mich auch im öffentlichen Leben besser zurecht. Das Einzeltraining hat mir wirklich sehr geholfen.

Praktikum Film

Das Istituto Europeo hat mich für ein Praktikum an eine Werbefilm-Firma vermittelt und dort habe ich 4 wunderbare Monate gearbeitet. Ich habe einen sehr guten Einblick in den Arbeitsalltag bekommen, da ich überall mit dabei sein durfte. Beim Dreh habe ich assistiert und übernahm die Verantwortung für den Aufbau und das Licht am Set. Mir wurde alles erklärt und ich habe viel über die Wirkung bestimmter Aufnahmen und Perspektiven gelernt. Bei der Postproduktion wurde immer nach meiner Meinung gefragt und ich durfte auch selber schneiden. Nebenbei hat sich mein Italienisch sehr verbessert, da ich es jeden Tag gesprochen habe. Ich habe meine Zeit in Florenz sehr genossen und das Praktikum hat mir unglaublich viel Spaß gemacht.

Once-in-a-lifetime Chance...Don't miss it!

Here is my story at istituto Europeo: I was looking for an Internship opportunity in some European country when an old friend of mine passed the wind of Istituto Europeo to me. I've got several options in Germany, Italy and France. As I was short of time and I had to get the ball rolling.
You know what I did? I made a list of advantages and disadvantages of all the institutions I could pass my Internship at, I contacted the coordinators, had an interview with them and only the coordinator at Istituto Europeo responded to all of my questions patiently, showed his own willingness and support for me to pass an Internship with them.
But still I've got cold feet before arriving to Florence as I had no idea of what was gonna happen next.
But as soon as I entered the university all the worries and fear disappeared since the management staff was already waiting for me with the necessary documents ready.
Frankly speaking I had the best couple of months in my life in Florence. Italy is a wonderland.
Istituto Europeo gives you great opportunities to practice, share your own experience and get more and more skills and knowledge that you will definitely to use the rest of your life.
In other words, take your chance, you are not gonna regret it!!!

Marvelous experience

Para mí fue una maravillosa experiencia que duró 3 meses, en los que tomé clase diariamente por la mañana de idioma italiano, además de historia del arte y cocina toscana. Los invito a que vivan la experiencia de Florencia y su cultura acompañados por el Istituto Europeo.

Social Media Marketing/Journalism Internship in Florence

My internship at Istituto Europeo was fantastic! I got to spend my time writing about all the exciting things to see and do in Florence for the institute's blog. It was a great opportunity to gain working experience as well as delve deeper into the Italian culture. The administration were all sincere, kind, and helpful, and I enjoyed going to my internship every day. If I had the opportunity, I would do it again without a doubt!

Interning in Italy

I had an amazing experience interning abroad in Florence, Italy. The program helped me find a great internship and housing and helped me throughout the whole process. My boss and supervisors at my workplace were extremely kind, understanding and flexible and I was able to learn a lot in a laid back, Italian envirnoment. I really enjoyed being able to experience another culture and actually live here. Living abroad is much different than just visiting, you have the opportunity to gain a respect and understanding for the culture, the place and the people. I am so glad I took this chance and lived in Italy for the summer, my future career and personal life will benefit from this experience.

Muy agradable y productivo

Mi experiencia en el Istituto Europeo ha sido verdaderamente buena. Me han encargado trabajos siempre dentro de mi ámbito (que es la publicidad) y me han dado mucha libertad para desarrollar mi creatividad y aportar ideas, lo cual en este tipo de trabajo es muy positivo.
El trato que he tenido con los compañeros ha sido magnífico, es un lugar muy agradable para trabajar y hay muy buen ambiente. El sitio en el que está es estupendo, porque está en pleno centro de Florencia, y esto me ha permitido ver cada día algunos de los lugares más bonitos de la ciudad. Por otro lado, además del trabajo, en la escuela se han preocupado de que conozca la cultura florentina, me han enseñado lugares y costumbres típicamente toscanos y me han facilitado mi estancia en Florencia informándome de cómo moverme por la ciudad, qué sitios ver...
En resumen, diría que han sido unas prácticas muy agradables, que me han permitido aprender y desarrollar mi trabajo como publicista y que me han ayudado a sumergirme en la cultura florentina y a hacer mi estancia más fácil. Estoy muy contenta con la experiencia.

Study Abroad

A great school to learn Italian and to be immersed with many other cultures as well. Very small class sizes which is great for learning a language. I wish the school had more students (only about 20). The school does offer some great programs.

Una Bella Esperienza

Istituto Europeo gave me the perfect internship experience while in Florence. The internship had flexible hours, my coworkers and boss were all extremely warm and welcoming, and I had the chance to try out a job that focused on a different area than what I study at university (healthcare management). At first I was a little disappointed that my internship placement wasn't in a hospital or doctor's office, however I am delighted with my placement now because I've been able to learn new skills, meet different people, and learn about what it takes to run a business in a different industry successfully (jewelry).

The staff at IE were always very helpful when I needed them, and checked up from time to time to make sure that everything was okay both at work and in my apartment. I really loved the experience of being able to live in an apartment with students from different countries, and have made many international friends because of it!! I would recommend this program to anyone looking to intern in Florence because it is MUCH MUCH more affordable than other internship programs that provide the same services, and they additionally allow you the option to take an intensive italian language course while you're here (which was very helpful!!). I had a great experience this summer in Florence, and it's all thanks to IE!

Grazie per tutto, Istituto Europeo!!!

Hoe overleef ik... Florence?

Eind zomer 2015 besloot ik voor drie maanden te gaan studeren in Florence. Italië is op zich geen vreemd land voor mij, want ik kom hier al jaren in de zomervakantie. Toch vroeg ik me in het vliegtuig, op de heenweg, wel even af waar ik nou in godsnaam aan begonnen was. Enerzijds was ik ontzettend benieuwd naar het ontdekken van deze stad, anderzijds vond ik het ook spannend om me alleen in een vreemde stad in een vreemd land te begeven. Achteraf kan ik zeggen dat ik een fantastische tijd heb gehad. Dit zal me voor de rest van mijn leven bijblijven.
Met dank aan Istituto Europeo heb ik de taal pas echt goed leren spreken. Daarnaast had ik veel profijt van de Italiaanse docenten, die mij in detail konden uitleggen wat bijvoorbeeld een handgebaar of spreekwoord inhield. Het fijne aan Istituto Europeo is dat de taallessen alleen in de ochtend zijn. Dat betekent dat je de hele middag de tijd hebt om op eigen houtje (of met je nieuwe vrienden) de stad te verkennen. Florence is daar de perfecte stad voor. Er zijn talloze musea en bezienswaardigheden, maar ook café's, markten en restaurants. Zelfs na drie maanden in Florence te hebben gewoond heb ik het gevoel dat ik zo veel dingen nog niet heb gezien. Gelukkig zijn er bij Istituto Europeo nog aanvullende cursussen die je een beetje wegwijs maken in de overdaad aan kunst en cultuur in deze stad. Ik heb naast de taallessen ook kunstgeschiedenis gevolgd. Hierin heb ik veel geleerd over de kunst uit de middeleeuwen en de renaissance die Florence bezit.
Ik kan Istituto Europeo aanraden, omdat je hier met open armen wordt ontvangen door een groep lieve mensen. Ik heb veel van ze geleerd, en zonder deze taal- en cultuurcursussen had ik het lang niet zo leuk gevonden.

Study abroad

When I was going to istituto Europeo to do my study abroad program I didn't know what to expect. I entered the room on the first day and it was just 6 of us during orientation. At first I was a little taken back, I was expecting a huge college program with different students from different universities from the states; that wasn't it at all. Long story short I really enjoyed the classes being small, it really gave us the opportunity to get to know our teachers and get on a personal level with them (professionally). I really enjoyed my time abroad at istituto Europeo, I would recommend anyone to go.

Erasmus prácticas

Ha sido una buena experiencia, en un ambiente agradable y realizando muchos trabajos para poder aumentar mi experiencia en la materia que estudio.
Me han tratado como si formara parte de la empresa y han considerado mi trabajo, ayudandome también a mejorarlo.

Research Internship in Sports Management

Setting up the internship was pretty easy. I chose to live with a family. This allowed me to save some money as dinner was provided. In addition, I got to practice Italian. I do think socially though it would have been better to live with other students. The internship itself was more of a research project. I learned a lot but I do wish it was more hands on with the people I worked with. It was still a great experience though. Plus, I got to live in Florence for two months.
