Overview

Learn to speak Italian like a native in tranquil Ferrara.

Arrive in Ferrara ready to live and learn in a historic city with a tight-knit and “homey” feel. The city is small and relatively free of tourists, with easy access to all the major cities of Italy. It’s such a bike-friendly place that CIEE will provide you with a bike so you can explore the city like the locals! You’ll stay with a welcoming Italian host family no more than 15 minutes from where you’ll be studying. With them, you’ll shop at local markets, prepare and share meals, and practice your Italian while living the typical everyday life of the family. In the classroom, you’ll enter intensive Italian language study with other international students and Americans at the University of Ferrara. When you’re not in class, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the city and participate in cultural activities like learning to make pasta and gelato, touring historic buildings, and supporting the local soccer team. Every day in this tranquil, history-rich city will provide opportunities to gain new knowledge on the banks of the River Po, in a city still surrounded by its medieval walls. Your Italian language skills will flourish, and you’ll create memories you’ll take with you for the rest of your life.
