Italian Students GO GLOBAL at University of Sydney

Bethany College students recently attended the GO GLOBAL event at the University of Sydney. The aim was to show 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 see the university in action, particularly during O 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.

Activities during the afternoon included analysing some of Dante’s works of literature and listening to the experiences of students in their Italian language learning which included participating in overseas exchange programmes and working for famous Italian companies including Giorgio Armani and DeLonghi. The pizza served for afternoon tea was greatly appreciated after all the hard work!
