Percorso di Lingua e Cultura Italiana per Bambini
The “Percorso di Lingua e Cultura Italiana per Bambini” focuses on bringing children closer to the Italian language and culture through narration, reading, and writing. We will present stories, activities, games, and songs aimed at developing each child’s language competency and confidence. For the older children, topics will also include history, geography, and the sciences, with points of reflection on Italian culture and traditions.
