It's certainly an experience that I cannot forget, blowing all expectations that I had coming in to the program. I learned so much more than just the basics of journalism and how to keep up with the tight schedule of this course. Coming from Thailand, I'm surprised to see how cultures are so different from two different countries; Italy and America. Its great how the course tries to expose us to other Italian culture like having Italian classes everyday or taking us other locations to try wine or see a gun factory and showing well done Italian films. Coming to this program I had no experience in writing journalism, and I'm very happy to say that the professors did a great job keeping their classes even for everyone, allowing everyone to catch up or give them extra help when it's needed. This program has helped me open my eyes to a new medium and all sorts of different possibilities that I would like to try and apply these skills once I get back to Thailand.
