Bilingual/Advanced Track

I corsi bilingue/avanzati sono strutturati per bambini già abitualmente esposti alla lingua italiana nella vita quotidiana. Per accedere a questi corsi non è richiesta una produzione linguistica avanzata, anche se si rende necessaria un’ottima comprensione della lingua.

Le lezioni settimanali, della durata di 60 minuti, sono condotte esclusivamente in italiano da insegnanti laureati e madrelingua, o dotati di una conoscenza linguistica dell’italiano paragonabile a quella di un insegnante madrelingua. L’enfasi del programma sarà sulla graduale acquisizione di un livello di lettura avanzato, dell‘abilità di scrivere e di usare la grammatica correttamente man mano che lo studente progredisce attraverso i tre livelli previsti. Inizialmente gli studenti potranno accedere a qualsiasi livello, a seconda delle loro capacità. Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma, o sul piazzamento degli studenti, si prega di contattare la nuova direttrice del programma linguistico per ragazzi,

Di tanto in tanto genitori volontari organizzano attività di svago in cui studenti e genitori hanno la possibilità di incontrarsi con altre famiglie allo scopo di conoscersi e socializzare. Le escursioni realizzate in passato hanno incluso una visita al Minneapolis Institute of Art, una giornata in slitta con autentico pasto italiano invernale a Powderhorn Park, un’escursione al Caponi Art Park and Learning Center e una visita alla pizzeria Punch, dove gli studenti hanno avuto modo di partecipare alla preparazione della pizza.
