Ages 3 – 6 Class
Our youngest students explore new languages through play, song and engaging projects. We keep things familiar and comfortable during class so that children gradually come to embrace the new language. Children are also encouraged to play and interact with one another in Italian. Over time, children are able to reproduce the language spontaneously.
Ages 7 – 11 Class
Scuola Italiana’s weekend program is designed for children ages 7- to 11-years-old. The program is very flexible and tailored to fit the age and skill level of the student. Students build their language skills as they move through fun thematic units. New vocabulary and grammar is introduced in each of the themes that include: family, self-image, home, sports & hobbies and nature. By using practical topics as a means for learning the language, kids gain core language skills and vocabulary that is relevant to their own lives and that they are excited to use outside of the classroom!Dates:

In today’s global society, it is truly important to give children the opportunity to learn multiple languages.
Being bilingual or multilingual, will not only open doors in the future for children at home and around the world, but it may also lead to enhanced cognitive skills, greater creative problem solving, and enthusiastic acceptance of diverse cultures and customs.
The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages offers a library of research that documents these benefits and more.
Registration is ongoing and welcome throughout the year!
