The Umbra Institute has seen many firsts this semester in terms of volunteer opportunities; a new partnership with Go Global: American School of English is no exception. This week three students started volunteering as classroom helpers, and will continue until the end of fall semester.
Go Global is an English language school located near Perugia. It was started last year by Marc Di Martino, a Boston native and long-time resident of Italy. Go Global offers a cultural approach to linguistic education, for anyone from kids to adults. The students will be volunteering as teaching assistants and classroom helpers in English classes for adults and children. Class sizes are small, ranging from 3-7 people. The Umbra Institute is excited at this new opportunity that gives the students a chance to interact with the local community, meet new Italians, and share the experience of learning a language.
