What should students know about studying abroad in Italy?
All the basics like: how much financial aid will be available in advance, dates in, vacation times, dates out, where & with whom they’ll be living, costs of a Eurail Pass, that any medical conditions or dietary restrictions will be met. They should have a checklist & make sure everything is checked off!
Parli Italiano? Parla italiano? Whether formal or informal, you better know how to speak the language! There are study abroad options where classes are conducted in English, but in order to get around and appreciate the country and the culture you really need to speak Italian. This is one of the European countries where all foreign films are dubbed (not subtitled) and outside of the cities (and often in the cities), you will not find that English is easily understood. So, take those Italian classes in school or find a way to cram but have a basic ability in the language before you go! (In any case, isn’t the point of this wonderful opportunity to understand and absorb another culture?)
Studying abroad in the UK is like studying abroad anywhere else.
1)Be safe, stay with the group you traveled with and have purpose and an interest in the specific area you are going to it helps minimize the overabundance of information you may receive
2) always have an idea of the weather
3) make sure your travel plans are in line with your destination because like the USA the UK is not a place it is a large body of 4 countries that you will want to have planned carefully to enjoy your journey
4) money exchange rate
5) power supply connectors
6) not forgetting a good camera with extra batteries to capture all the glory of your new friends and the sites
7) calling or skyping home, parents are nervous and want to know that you are ok (smile)
8) Having a Blast while you Learn
