Study Abroad Elevator Speech


Nearly six months ago, I announced to my family and friends that I had been accepted to IU’s summer program in Florence, Italy. Upon making the decision to go abroad, I received an influx of comments about the things I would see, the people I would meet and travel with, and that amount that my Italian language skills would increase. Prior to my departure I did a lot of listening to all things Italy-related, as well as to opinions and suggestions regarding study abroad opportunities and the experience of traveling.


İyi yolculuklar(Good Travels)! Some Tips for the Soon-to-be Traveler.

Pre-departure preparations are probably the worst part of traveling for me; there are so many tasks to complete and so many ends to tie!
