About Program

SAI invites students to immerse themselves in Italian language culture in the heart of Tuscany! SAI works in partnership with Siena Italian Studies, a program which specializes in a ‘gentle full-immersion’ approach to Italian language and culture. This program is perfect for highly motivated beginner, intermediate and advanced Italian language students. SIS offers some of the most innovative programs in Italy that work to fully integrate the education of language, culture and service learning, in and out of the classroom.

SAI oversees and coordinates all aspects of student enrollment, including application processing, course selection and credit, visa advising, student health insurance, and transcripts. In addition, SAI provides comprehensive student services, from the moment of application, through the on-site experience, until students return home.

Becoming Italian

SAI Siena really provided a unique opportunity of becoming really immersed in the italian culture. I lived in a host family with a 8 year old boy and he loved One Direction and Taylor Swift songs. At least once a week we would have a dance party to all the songs, he would go through them on youtube and we would sing and dance across the whole entire house. He also loved pancakes so every time we were home together for breakfast he would help me make pancakes and we would eat them together, usually with nutella.
