Summer 3-12 Semester Credits

Students who elect to study abroad with API in Taormina attend courses at Babilonia – Center for Italian Language and Culture. Babilonia was recently voted the top Italian language school in Italy, and consistently ranks in the top 10 in the country in this regard. This program is open to students of all levels, and is intended to provide a true Italian language and culture immersion experience. This is a perfect program for the serious student who is looking for an off-the-beaten path study abroad experience!

Students may choose to study for a short-term, intensive program of 2, 4, or 6 weeks. The number of courses available to them depends on the length of the program. Students in a 2 week program choose 1 course; students in a 4 week program choose 2 courses, students in a 6 week program choose 3 courses. The program price is based on the types and number of courses taken. Not all courses are available each session.

The course selection may vary and no course is guaranteed. Some courses may require additional fees for books, labs, equipment, etc. These fees are not included in the program cost. Students are encouraged to make course selections from the online listings when completing the program application as course listings, descriptions, prerequisites and/or lab fees are subject to change.
