Group Classes for Children – Giardino dei Piccoli (age 4-5)
Full Term 16 weeks (excluding national holidays)
Experiment Italian through a wide range of engaging activities and start speaking in a very natural way. The curriculum builds upon a balance between activities led by our teachers and by the interests of our children who are encouraged to actively influence the course and format of their learning. The projects form the Essential Curriculum (the Body, Colors, Shapes, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy, Introduction to Writing and Reading), and every year the school develops specific projects which arise within the class groups, such as Cooking, Creativity Art and Craft, Storytelling and Music.

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 and learn the basics through pedagogical games, books,songs, and simple art projects that will stimulate their attention.
- 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.
- High Beginner – Your child already knows the basics 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.
