After a brief haitus, the AP Italian Language and Culture program is back and stronger than ever. John Cabot University is proud to support the reinstatement of this program by hosting 25 teachers of Advanced Placement Italian Language and Culture at the Advanced Placement Summer Institute held on our campus last week.
During this week-long training institute the teachers took classes daily at our Tiber campus, and spent nights exploring lesser-known parts of Rome with both student and professional tour guides. The Institute is sponsored by the College Board with the support of the Italian Government and the Embassy of Italy in Washington, D.C.
Learning a foreign language is a critical skill in our global economy. Although Italian is not as widely spoken as Spanish, Arabic, or Mandarin, the language is still highly useful. Italy is the world’s 8th largest economy, and the language is spoken in prominent Italian diaspora communities throughout the world. Italian is useful SAT prep as well: the language’s deep roots in Latin help students familiarize themselves with the roots and stems that make up advanced vocabulary in the English language, making Italian a modern way for students to improve their ability to understand the meaning of words.
Language skills are useful academically, professionally, and personally, and John Cabot University is thrilled to continue working with the College Board to help the AP Italian program thrive.
