ESN Perugia organises the #BeItalian project: laboratories aimed at learning and teaching the Italian language in a young and dynamic context. The voluntary workers of ESN Perugia will help the Erasmus Students during their stay in Italy also through a linguistic support, based on the principle of “students helping students”, firmly convinced of the results obtained from a non-formal peer-to-peer education.

The laboratories are fun and interactive, and are aimed at working on the communication needs that every student meets during its stay abroad. At the same time the guys at the Erasmus Student Network will be glad to show the beauty of our language and culture. The project is held every semester and it is enriched by the collaboration with professors from the University for Foreigners of Perugia.

The activities will take place in the University classes, which are provided with appropriate instruments, and require just a symbolic price. The greatest success of the #BeItalian project and the distinguishing feature of our organisation is the confidentiality and the friendship that, meeting after meeting, rises between the incoming students and their Italian voluntary colleagues.
