NOI – Not an ordinary Italian Class
May 6, 2018 @ 3:00 am - 5:15 am$25 – $875
Il Punto! Italian Cultural Center
is pleased to offer a Sunday Italian Program for children:
AGE 3-5: NOI – ITALIAN PLAYDATE
The Piccoli is designed for children who have no (or little) exposure to the Italian language. They will learn Italian through games, activities, songs and hands-on creativity (such as art projects).
Children will primarily learn (or expand their understanding of) Italian and they will be exposed to our Culture. The instructor will emphasize the exploration of Italian music, geography, customs and food through creative play.
AGE 6-10: NOI – ITALIAN CLASSES (BEGINNERS)
This class is designed for older children who are beginning to explore different areas of the Italian culture and language. Children will become familiar with Italian letters and phonemes. They will build a basic vocabulary through guided listening and speaking activities. This class has a strong focus on building confidence in speaking, listening and understanding of simple Italian sentences.
The first 40 minutes of each lecture will be indeed dedicated to listening and speaking activities, grammar tools and vocabulary building. Depending on the students’ ages, we might also be able to introduce reading and writing activities. The last 20 minutes will be dedicated to fun learning experiences, often games that beginners and advanced learners can play together.
AGE 6-10: NOI – ITALIAN CLASSES (ADVANCED)
This course is designed for older children who are already able to express themselves in Italian. Classes include grammar instruction, as well as conversation and activities such as games and role-playing. As students progress and gain more confidence, they will listen to short stories and contemporary songs, developing a familiarity and comfort level with speaking and understanding the living language.
The first 40 minutes of each lecture will be indeed dedicated to listening and speaking activities, grammar tools and vocabulary building. Depending on the students’ ages, we might be able to introduce reading and writing, too. The last 20 minutes will be dedicated to fun learning experiences, often games that beginners and advanced learners might play together.
