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. 

Il “Percorso di Lingua e Cultura Italiana per Bambini” ha l'obiettivo di avvicinare i bambini alla lingua e cultura italiana attraverso la narrazione, lettura e scrittura. Presenteremo storie, attività, giochi, canzoni ed esercizi che mirano a sviluppare le competenze e abilità linguistiche del bambino. Per i più grandi gli argomenti riguarderanno anche Storia, Geografia e Scienze con spunti di riflessione su aspetti relativi a tradizioni della nostra cultura.
