I learned a lot

As a camp counselor in Italy (this is a day camp) you're totally immersed in another culture, so while you're teaching English you also lean a ton from the kids. My meals are with the other counselors in the group for the month, but the majority of the day is with the kids and it's always fun each day.

Un'esperienza autentica e italiana

Having already studied abroad in Perugia, a small University town in central Italy, I was ready for my next adventure abroad to further immerse myself in Italy's unique culture, and to continue practicing the beautiful language. As a first time teacher, being in the classroom was intimidating at first, but I was surprised to see how quickly the middle school and nursery school students opened up their minds and hearts to a twenty-year old form the outskirts of New York City.

Though some were shy at first, their precautions escaped as I was able to connect to these students, creating a comfort zone when I joked with them in Italian, and pushing them to break out of that comfort zone as I challenged them to translate song lyrics, introduce themselves, and exercise their knowledge of English.

Though it was a short amount of time, it was easy to see the growth of each and every student's confidence each and every day, and by still keeping in touch with them via email, I can confidently say that their English continues to thrive. These students and their families not only welcomed me in the classrooms, but in the community, and in 2 short weeks Lido di Fermo because a place I was visiting, to a place I can call home, and thanks to GeoVisions I'm already planning my trip back.

Italy camp counselor

This trip to Italy was one of the best experiences of my life! Teaching children in Italy was a learning experience filled with joy and love! I learned things I can bring back to the USA for my own classroom. Also, I made friends that will always be dear to my heart & made amazing memories traveling throughout the country.

Tutoring English to a family abroad

It was not what I expected, but on the other hand I gained more than I expected to. My advice is to have prospective tutors learn EXACTLY all the circumstances surrounding their expected programs. All in all a very positive experience.

Review of "walk and talk" in Spain

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in Spain this summer. My host family and I got along immensely well, and I was able to have a lifestyle/experience outside of Au Pairing. Along the way, I met so many wonderful people apart of this program and established great friendships with each of them that I'll strive to maintain forever. I have developed a very close relationship with my host mom and I am forever grateful for he connection we have forged. My family and I still remain in contact and will hopefully continue to do so for years to come.

The one thing that I wish had been more clear to me was where I was staying in Spain. I was told I was living in Granada when, in reality, I was living in a town that was a 30 minute bus ride from all of my friends, which made it a little more difficult to hang out and explore on the weekdays. Overall this program has been a great learning experience, giving me the tools to improve my Spanish, gain more independence, and to immerse myself with a new and foreign culture.
