Summer is the perfect time to explore the city of Rome while practicing your Italian language skills. Our Rome Summer Language & Culture Program offers a variety of language courses, ranging from beginning to advanced, taught by expert faculty trained in second language acquisition. Practice all four skills (speaking, reading, listening, and writing) while maintaining the main emphasis on oral production. During your time in Rome, you won't just speak the language—you'll learn what makes the Italian culture one of a kind.
Over the course of the summer, you will come to know Rome's lively piazzas, winding streets, and unique charm. The Rome Language & Culture Program offers enrollment in IES Abroad courses including an Italian language course, housing in student apartments, and field trips; you will have the opportunity to meet Italian and international students alike. Starting at the IES Abroad Center beside the Tiber River across from the Castel Sant' Angelo, this program will help you to gain a meaningful cultural experience and a deeper knowledge of what it means to be a citizen of the world.

There's no place like Rome. With its abundant architectural and artistic riches, Rome celebrates more than 2,500 years of history. Think about it: you will be enveloped in the Roman past—the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter's Basilica—while enjoying all of the modern-day cultural jewels that the city has to offer. Why wait a minute longer? Indulge in Rome's splendor—and did we mention the food?—as soon as possible.
Whether it's an orientation program that makes you feel prepared, housing that is well-located and comfortable, or the field trips that take you to places off the beaten path—we're all about our student services. To find out more specific details, click here and select the Student Life tab.
