“Girotondo” is the name of our Italian Language course for children. We believe that children learn best by doing, so we have developed an experiential curriculum, which has produced fantastic results. Our teachers are Italian native speakers and we provide an environment that promotes a natural and effortless language acquisition/reinforcement. Our lively and creative program helps children feel the excitement of learning Italian and gives them an insight into Italian culture. The classes are activity, conversation, games and songs based and are for students from the age of 3. Our full immersion programs engage, entertain, and educate, entirely in the foreign language! Your child will learn to communicate actively in age-appropriate groups. We will focus on building functional language skills by featuring a specific language structure each week.
Learning a new language at any age is an enormously rewarding experience in many ways. Children naturally understand that a new language is something to explore, to play around with, and to enjoy. The feeling of accomplishment that comes with their first steps toward a second language can spur them on to a deeper and broader passion for learning in general. Because children are at a special "window of opportunity" age in which language learning is intuitive and natural, the ease and pleasure of this learning experience may boost their confidence and their desire for new discoveries.
