Ciao, in 4 days I depart for my 3 month exchange to Italy and I'm very excited, but since I've nearly completely neglected Duolingo for so long my Italian is not very good. Does anyone have any tips on how to communicate with only limited language ability (around A2) or tips for student exchange in general? Grazie in anticipo, Jasopop

Wonderful. Have a great time. I went to Italy with zero Italian and in a week I was able to have small conversations. Italians are warm and like to talk, just talk with everyone in Italian, keep doing DL.

Well as an exchange student you will mostly stay in touch with other exchange students so Italian doesn't have to be your priority I suppose :p

But if I were you I would use it as an opportunity to improve your Italian, just speak it (even if badly) all the time with Italians and you'll pick up the things you've forgotten in no time. And you'll learn plenty of new things so I wouldn't worry too much if I were you.
