Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help fund my Italian Language Course in Rome (Summer 2019)

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

My dream is to attend a four-week intensive Italian language course this summer in the sublime city of Rome!

The good news is that I came second in a competition to win a place at a language school ( ) in Rome and as a result I have been awarded 40% off the course fee. The bad news is that I still need to pay the remaining 60%, as well as pay for flights and accommodation for a whole month in Rome. Therefore, I am asking for people to donate whatever they can afford to help me get to Rome this summer.

I have been learning Italian for about 3 years now and am passionate about developing my language skills to the point of being fluent. I have taken a few short courses over the last few years and I practice every day using Duolingo, listening to Michel Thomas' Learn Italian, and studying Italian Grammar with various exercise books. However, as helpful as all of this has been and continues to be, I really need to spend some time in Italy, practicing every day with locals and immersing myself in both the language and the culture. A four-week intensive course in Rome would do just this by providing me with daily tuition and by throwing me into encounters with Italians each and every day.

It would mean the world to me to be able to spend a whole month in Rome this summer and I'm confident that I would return to the UK a fluent speaker of Italian. Please help me achieve my dream by donating whatever you can afford. Grazie mille (many thanks!)

    Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I am amazed that I've reached 25% in less than a week. If anyone else would like to contribute to this I would be grateful for whatever you can spare. I'm so excited at the prospect of improving my Italian in Rome this summer.
