What is the Speak Summer Campus experience?

The Speak Summer Campus is a free 10-day summer programme in Italy for university and college students (aged 18 – 30), which brings together native English speakers like you, our “Anglos”, volunteers from all around the world and Italian students of English, in a wonderful location in the Italian Alps.

The Speak Summer Campus is a unique linguistic, social and cultural experience based on English conversation filled with days that are stimulating and fun, with no preparation on your part – all you need to do is speak English!

Our Anglos and Italian students, our Learners, live alongside each other, sharing the experience of an innovative and exciting summer programme, while immersing the Learners in a dynamic environment of natural English conversation.

We are looking for English-speaking students from around the world to volunteer with us as Anglos. We welcome applications from any study background and are particularly interested in Anglos who are studying or have experience in mechatronics, engineering, electronics, design or related fields.

 

Volunteer as an Anglo with us - what's in it for you?

  • A free, all-inclusive 10-day stay with food and accommodation in a wonderful location in Italy

  • Chance to meet students from all around the world, make friends and network

  • Build your CV through an international collaboration project

Please note: Anglo places at each Campus are limited and we advise you to apply as early as possible in order to secure a place.
