An introduction to Italian starts at age 5 with a course for all that includes stories, songs, drama, poetry
and an introduction to reading and writing.

In years 2-6 two parallel courses are offered.

Course 1 – follows the Italian curriculum using appropriate textbooks and gaining a strong knowledge of reading, writing and grammar. These children are also offered an after school course of history, geography and science
which prepare them to take the Italian state exam for entry into Italian Middle School.

Course 2 – follows a rich oral course which is aimed at children learning Italian as an additional language.
This leads on to both reading and writing.
