Host an Italian Exchange Student

Interested in hosting an foreign exchange high school student for the 2017-2018 school year?  Here is a perfect opportunity!

Isotta is a 17 year old girl from Italy.

“I’m Isotta, I’m sixteen and I am a student of Scientific Secondary School in Italy. I think it’s a really good opportunity to improve my English, learn new things, new culture and different way of life; I’m sociable so I hope to meet new people and make new friends too.

I love doing sports and in my free time I love so much cooking, painting, drawing, taking photos, listening to the music and staying with friends. I’ve got a little dog and I love dogs and cats so much. GPA: 3.00 Program Length: 10 months, August 2017-June 2018.”


If interested, please contact Pamela, CIEE Local Coordinator – Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), via email and/or phone to obtain additional information about Isotta and CIEE:
