Delving into culture and history
through an urban learning experience
Alphabet City is a unique urban experience in one of the most exciting and culturally rich cities in the world. The program takes 13 to 17-year-old students on a journey through Rome, from its most famous landmarks to its best kept secrets.
Students study a foreign language (English or Italian) and learn about the historical and cultural heritage of Rome while living the life of their Roman peers. Each day is loaded with adventure and discovery as they stroll past piazzas, gaze up through the oculus of the Pantheon, shop around the Spanish Steps, and eat local street food in Testaccio.
Language and Learning
Rome, deemed the seat of Western civilization, has over time made significant contributions to philosophy, law, art, science, and fashion, making it a font of knowledge. Having Rome as a backdrop is a natural enrichment to our program and a stimulus to our students’ learning and creativity.
The whole program is delivered in English and the daily schedule is organized into three sections: Academic, Cultural, and Social.
The academic program is divided into two segments: Language Learning and Cultural Education. Students choose between English or Italian language instruction and follow a 10-hour weeklong curriculum. They are tested upon arrival to evaluate their level and placed accordingly in small classes that are dynamic, engaging and highly communicative.
Directly following the language classes, students come together for Cultural Education classes which are complementary to the program and aim to introduce and discuss the cultural topic of the day ranging from ancient history to cooking to contemporary Roman life.
Every afternoon our city campers set off to discover the architectural, cultural, and historical gems of Rome. Guided through the city as a group, each day students may visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, prepare fresh pasta in a cooking class, admire the brilliance of Caravaggio and Michelangelo, or play sports in Villa Borghese.
In the evening our students continue to explore the Roman way of life as the sun sets. They are treated to authentic Roman pizza and supplìor classic pasta recipes like cacio e pepe combined with night walks to the Trevi Fountain, a visit to the fortress of Castel Sant’Angelo, live music along the river Tiber, or a gelato in the artistic quarter of Trastevere.
