On Wednesday October 24th, 2018 we skyped with two IB students, Erin and Amara, whom are currently studying in Milano. We asked them many questions on their experience abroad so far. We asked about the university, classes, local area, travel and of course, speaking italian!
They said they use their Italian skills quite often rather than depending on speaking English. Which is intimidating yet exciting for students planning to go to Italy to hear and prepare for. The girls talked about how a lot of the times they take trains or buses to visit other countries. Since Everything in Europe is very close, it is easier and cheaper to travel from country to country. They gave a few tips on this such as websites to use to plan your travels. As for the college they are attending they said they are enjoying studying in Italy a lot. They also informed us that they are currently doing internships and they are especially enjoying those.
Talking to these girls, hearing their tips and advice for studying abroad and dealing with being in an unfamiliar territory was very useful and informational!
