In the Girotondo programs, bambinos ages two to five learn the language while participating in age-appropriate arts activities, such as games, songs, dances and movies (think Disney flicks in Italian). Older children (ages 5 to 12) put together a play entirely in Italian (which they present at the end of the session) in the Teatro Italiano classes. As they prepare their lines, costumes and songs, they’ll also practice Italian vocabulary, idioms and grammar. Ages 2 to 12.
