DLINQ instructional designer Dr. Sonja Burrows worked with the Middlebury School in Italy to create this pre-immersion digital language-learning website. Within this learning space, students preparing for language immersion in Italy can spend time learning the language and culture so as to ready themselves for their immersive cultural and linguistic experience while living and studying in Italy. Additionally, you will find information about traveling to and living in Florence, including maps, activities and events, a visual gallery, and more. This learning space, while designed for students preparing for participation in our study abroad program in Italy, is a helpful resource for all students who are preparing to travel to Italy or who would like to learn Italian.
