ITA-207I is an intensive, four-week, language immersion program, held at the Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS) in Pisa. The course will meet five days a week and provides 90 hours of overall classroom instruction: 3 hours of daily instruction in the morning with the Princeton faculty member and 1.5 hours in the afternoon with the SNS faculty member. Every Friday, students will have the opportunity to go on cultural outings, accompanied by both faculty members.
The core objective of ITA-207I is to present the students with a wide variety of writing situations, and styles in Italian and to familiarize them with the cultural life of the host city. The course is designed to elevate students' language proficiency levels and enable understanding of Italian culture through interaction with the surrounding environment during task-based activities in the city of Pisa and during field trips to other historic, art-filled cities like Florence, Siena, and Lucca.
*The final syllabus and course materials will be made available to students prior to departure from Princeton.
Studying and living abroad with access to the instructional resources of the Scuola, in close contact with qualified international peers provides students with unique formative experiences which enables progress in the study of Italian and other disciplines at Princeton.
