Download program booklet

Teaching placements are typically made in and around the towns of Pavia and Voghera, both of which are located in the Lombardy region in northern Italy. Given Italy’s popularity, placements may also be arranged in additional Lombardy communities. Teachers typically live in homestay accommodations, but other options may include apartments, bed and breakfast establishments, and dormitories.

Teaching Responsibilities

You will teach conversational and written English to a variety of grade levels, but you may also have occasional opportunities to teach your content areas using English as the medium of instruction. Further, it may be possible to fulfill practicum requirements in Italy for the ESL/ENL license addition.

Other Considerations

Proficiency in Italian is not required, but participants are encouraged to learn basic words and phrases before they leave for their placement. Participation is not limited to students pursuing the ENL/ESL license addition.
