Italian Students GO GLOBAL at University of Sydney

Bethany College students recently attended the GO GLOBAL event at the University of Sydney. The aim of this annual event is to show current Year 12 students what their options are at a tertiary level if wanting to continue with their language studies – or start a new one!

The students were able to take a guided tour of the University and see what occurs during Orientation Week, where different social groups are vying to attract the next batch of students. Sitting in a real lecture theatre listening to guest speakers including Professor Vrasidas Karalis gave our students a taste of what it’s like to be a university student.

The afternoon session was spent with other high school students of Italian unravelling and analysing some of Dante’s works of literature and listening to the experiences of students in their Italian language learning. The afternoon tea was greatly appreciated after all the hard work!
