Casa Italiana offers a new learning path for children participating in the Sunday course of Italian Immersion.

 

This new didactic system draws its inspiration from the curriculum used in Italian schools. Its objective is to teach and improve the linguistic competence of students for the learning of the Italian language.

 

The courses will start on September 08, 2024 and will end on May 11, 2025, for a total of 30 lessons and 90 hours of class time. 

 

Students’ progress will be evaluated in January, at the halfway mark of the course, and after the final test the students will receive a certificate at the end of the course.

 

The objective of this new methodology is to provide optimal continuity to the learning process and to maximize the continued development of the students’ four linguistic skills (comprehension, expression, reading and writing.) within the respect of the specific needs of each age bracket and each scholastic setting. 

Our classes include Italian grammar, Italian History, Italian Geography and Italian Literature, All this, thanks to the annual duration of the courses and the language skills activities specifically designed for foreign students, including:

 

•Reading-writing learning paths designed to learn the basic lexicon and fundamental morphosyntactic structures;

•Total physical response;

•Use of official textbooks;

•Use of iconographic material;

•Games or other activities that use language as a tool to reach an objective;
•Systematic use of songs to learn lexicon and structures;

•Leadership by native speakers teachers who will speak almost exclusively (90%) in Italian, and trained to teach Italian as a second language, among their high level preparation.

 

The course’s  book + additional material: Power Points presentations, audiovisual materials, video, and games, +  additional documents on grammar, etc. will be used by the instructor according to the needs of the class.
