LANGUAGE LEVELS FOR GROUP COURSES:
- Absolute Beginner – Introduction to Italian. This group class is for absolute beginners. Your child has never studied Italian. He/She will be exposed to the Italian Language by learning the basics (colors, numbers, season, months etc..) through a variety of activities and by creating simple sentences with the help of the teacher. In this way, kids will also be introduced to Italian grammar and start to get familiar with it.
- Beginner – Your child knows some Italian vocabulary but despite a good understanding, he/she still struggles to communicate orally in a spontaneous way. In this class, the teacher will speak only in Italian to allow your child to get more and more familiar with the language and help him/her to eventually respond/speak in Italian. Kids will also improve the grammar that they had studied in an absolute beginner class.
- High Beginner – Your child already knows the basics of Italian grammar for beginners and we will help them to improve it more.
- Native Level – If your child is a (like) native Italian speaker, this is the right class.
**For all levels: Topics from prior lessons are reviewed at the beginning of each session. A new topic is introduced every week.
