CALENDAR 2023 - 2024

Beginner/Intermediate Youth Courses

The beginner/intermediate track is designed for students with little to no experience with the Italian language. The 60 minute weekly lessons are conducted by university-educated instructors with native fluency in Italian and emphasize the gradual and progressive acquisition of basic speaking, listening comprehension, reading, writing and grammar skills as students advance through the program. REGISTER NOW FOR AN EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT!

Dates/Times: Saturdays 9am - 10am and 10am - 11am, Feb. 10 - May 18, 2024.

(NO CLASS March 2, March 30, and April 6)

Bilingual/Advanced Youth Courses

I corsi bilingue/avanzati sono strutturati per i giovani già abitualmente esposti alla lingua italiana nella vita quotidiana. Le lezioni settimanali, della durata di 60 minuti, sono condotte esclusivamente in italiano da insegnanti laureati e madrelingua. L’enfasi del programma sarà sulla graduale acquisizione di un italiano parlato in maniera fluida e l‘abilità di usare la grammatica correttamente anche nella scrittura. Gli studenti amplieranno il loro vocabolario e le conoscenze linguistiche attraverso l'interazione con materiali autentici multi-mediali (musica, testi letterari, spot pubblicitari, ecc.) e sarà possibile anche mirare all'eventuale esame AP in italiano, man mano che lo studente progredisce attraverso i livelli previsti. ISCRIZIONI APERTE CON LO SCONTO FINO ALLA FINE DI NOVEMBRE!

Date/Orari: Sabato 10:15 - 11:15 e 11:15- 12:15, 10 febbraio - 18 maggio, 2024. (NON il 2 marzo, il 30 marzo e il 6 aprile).
