Creative Writing: On-Site Creative Writing Course
We will walk through some of Rome's most suggestive and secret corners and try to steal some of their mystery by capturing and then re-telling their stories.
We will also read stories on-site and learn to draw inspiration from the work of others or the many legends that inhabit the recesses of the eternal city. Students will be encouraged to explore their voice by experimenting with different genres, working in small groups and sharing their ideas, and word-smithing their pieces until they are fully developed.
Italian Conversation: Understand Rome and Italy
To really experience Italy you need to feel the color and rhythm of the Italian language.
This course aims to help students experience Italian in everyday contexts so that they can use it in their wanderings around Rome. In the classroom, students will learn by doing, and they will be involved in all sorts of team projects, musical games, and creative thinking activities. Students will also study cultural topics, which will enable them to better understand Rome and Italy.
Latin in Rome: Latin Grammar and Vocabulary
This course focuses on the grammar and vocabulary of the Latin language.
Understanding Latin grammar and knowing Latin vocabulary offers insight into Romance languages such as Italian, French, and Spanish, and enriches knowledge of English. Daily lessons will consist of the presentation of new grammar, as well as drill exercises in which the learned grammar and vocabulary are consolidated. Through the stories we read, students will become familiar with Roman society, history, and mythology, and will gain, as well, a clearer perception of Western civilization.
