More than 50 students participated in last week’s TANDEM language exchange program. This weekly program, organized by the Umbra Institute, brings American students together with Italian students wanting to learn English. The result is a noisy room with clusters of students speaking in two languages to each other. A hopefully long-lasting result will be improved conversational skills for the students.
