La squadra della Piccola Università Italiana
Hi, My name is Marisa I'm from Coon Rapids, MN where my mom and dad still live. Coon Rapids is about 20 minutes from Minneapolis, so I go there as much as I can. Right now I am living in Mankato, MN for school. It is about an hour and a half from my home town.
My family includes my mom, dad, a little sister named Kelsie and a dog named Bailey. My sister lives with me in Mankato. We are very close, she is my best friend. I try to see my parents as much as possible, but it can be hard with school and work.
I enjoy reading, going to the beach, hanging out with my friends, meeting new people and just having a good time.
I am very excited to study abroad in Italy, I've wanted to travel there for a long time now so I was very happy to see the opportunity come up. I love learning the language, even if it is difficult for me at times since this is the only other language I am learning other than English. Filomena is a wonderful teacher, you can tell she loves to teach us and really wants us to learn. She's very helpful and a very fun and kind person. Even with the language barrier she manages to get her sense of humor through to all of us girls she's teaching. I can only imagine how wonderful the rest of the teachers at the Piccola Università Italiana are going to be and cannot wait to meet you all.
Sono Anna. Sono di Hurley, Wisconsin. Sono Americana. Mi piace leggo e rido e mangio e bevo vino bianco e mi piace giocare a tennis.
So, like I said, my name is Anna and I am originally from a small town in northern Wisconsin. I have now lived in Mankato for a year now and I really like it. I am a junior at MSU and am majoring in Women Studies and History :) I am so thankful for this opportunity to study abroad. I have always wanted to travel and this will be my first time out of the United States besides Canada. I am really looking forward to being there! 9 days from tomorrow :) I'm excited!
I has been so wonderful having Filomena! She has been so fun and a wonderful teacher! She has done a great job in preparing us for this journey. Again thank you so much for this opportunity! It will be the experience of a lifetime. :)

The school video will provide a better impression of the school, its classrooms, the school activities and the city of Tropea!
Studying abroad is an important experience!

The Italian language school is located in the heart of the old town of Tropea in a beautiful historical building from the 18th century restored and extended to the infrastructure of a professional school building in 1993. Tropea is a charming, medieval town with a population of 7.000. Located on the instep of the Italian boot, it lies on the same latitude as the famous Aeolian Islands. Italians affectionately refer to Tropea as the Pearl of Calabria. Here, you find unspoilt natural landscape with lush green vegetation, forming a magnificent contrast with the deep blue, crystal clear water of the sea.
The highlight of the summer program 2008 is the “L’Italiano Navigando”, Sailing through the fantastic and picturesque Aeolian Islands on a 22 meter long wooden boat combined with professional Italian lessons onboard.
The weekly cultural programme offers various opportunities to indulge in the Italian Culture. cinema evenings with classical Italian films, private classical concerts at school, motorboat excursions to discover unspoilt white sandy beaches with deep blue crystal clear water and many cultural excursions in Calabria, the Aeolian Islands, Campania and Sicily.
