Would you like to introduce your little one(s) to a new foreign language? Are your children part-Italian but don’t have a chance to practice Italian with other kids? Are you looking for a school for them to explore a new language in a fun and enjoyable way? Did you know that introducing your child to a second language during their childhood enhances their cognitive development and can help your child build their self-esteem and confidence!?
Our children’s lessons are stimulating and entertaining: children have fun while learning because they feel at ease with their teacher. Our Italian language teaching method is anchored in the Common European Framework of Reference and is driven by a didactic method that is the result of a decade of experience in the field. Our children’s program is designed to actively involve our little students. We use a wide variety of learning tools to ensure the children have fun while learning. They will work in a group and we will keep track of their experiences through three important approaches: Discovery, Creativity, Body.
They are encouraged to experience the language through a wide range of fun activities to help them start speaking Italian in a very natural way. But still focusing on grammar, to help them become more familiar with it and later on, being able to apply it. Each group class has no more 7 students to make sure each one gets the needed attention. If you like it, picture your child! Vi aspettiamo!
