Teaching in Italy
The FAU Italian Program has a collaboration with the High School Network of the Regions of Piedmont and Lombardy to hire American students as teachers of English as a Foreign Language.
FAU Italian Program can nominate students, for a period of 4 to 9 months (300-500 hours), to cover half or all of the academic year (September-June). Currently enrolled, last-year BA students or recent FAU graduates with a bachelor’s degree may apply.
The US student is given an Italian mentor and guide to assist with the cultural adjustment and professional needs.
The US student works a total of 25 hours a week, among classroom activities, class preparation, tutoring, conversation, office consultation, and assistance with possible excursions.
The Lombardy Network SITE Program is a paid internship.
It is important to respect a strict time schedule for this project, because it involves applying for the necessary VISA and permits through the Italian Consulate in Miami.
