MY STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE IN SALERNO




By Megan Krynen 
Some of our American Students, who joined our Faculty Led Program at Accademia Italiana last summer 2016, would like to share with us their impressions and feelings about  their  Study Abroad experience in Italy and in Salerno.

This week we are posting the interview to Megan Krynen student at OLE MISS UNIVERSITY- Oxford- Mississippi- Joining the Faculty Led Program at Accademia Italiana Salerno in May- June 2016


·        Why did you choose Accademia Italiana for your Study Abroad?             
It was offered through my University and gave me college credits.

·        What was your favorite part about Salerno?
 Everything about Salerno is wonderful. It is a beautiful town on the water with amazing food and the sweetest people who remember your name.

·        What made your experience studying abroad in Salerno unique?
     Living with a host family helped my Italian and made me learn about the Italian culture first hand. My host mother, Bianca, was so sweet and took care of us.

·        How did local staff support you throughout your program?
  They were amazing. They took care of anything we needed like printing our train tickets. Our teacher, Alessia, was the best and always answered any questions we had about the town. We miss her!

·        Describe a typical day in the life of your program.
    We would wake up and stroll down the water side to the school and then have class for half the day. We would learn Italian then go to lunch and return for the afternoon program. We did some really cool things in the afternoon like paint pottery and visit a Limoncello factory. 

·        What did you enjoy doing in your free time?
     We would explore Salerno and meet the residents. Sometimes we would shop or go to the beach. On Sundays, we took the ferry to Positano or Capri

·        What was your accommodation like? What did you like best about it?
  The house we stayed at was right next to the school. Our house mother was the best. Bianca cooked good food every night and even made us a pizza to take to Capri. We had our own bed and wifi!

·        Now that you're home, how has your time in Italy  impacted your life?
 My Italian has improved 100 percent and I am counting down the days to return. My Italian friends still talk to me on Facebook.
