Serena is a university student from the beautiful seaside town of Maratea, in Basilicata, in the south of Italy. She's very friendly and takes us shopping for clothes, to her home, to meet her friends, to get ready for a party, and to a music store.
Serena and Elena talk about the school system in Italy, which is quite different from that of other countries. Terminology is different and can be deceptive, so be prepared for some false cognates. Where Americans talk about going away to school (college, university), Italians talk about the university. Find out what "scuola" means to these two young Italian women.
