Learn a Language in Europe
Several years ago, I had a chance to experience something I'd always wanted to try: a
"language vacation" at a school in Europe.
Studies Abroad, Inc., an agency that arranges courses for adults in
schools on four continents, told me to pick a language and a location. I chose
Italian in Siena, Italy--and the resulting language holiday was one of the most
delightful and rewarding weeks that I've enjoyed in years. I've turned my
experience into a collection of articles and photos:

agency" is, and how an agency
like the one that arranged my trip can help you pick the school or program that best fits your
needs--or those of the children
and teens in your family.
