Beginner/Intermediate Track

The beginner/intermediate track is designed for children with little to no experience with the Italian language. The 60 minute weekly lessons are conducted in Italian by university-educated instructors with native or native-like fluency and emphasize the gradual acquisition of basic reading, writing and grammar skills as students advance through the four levels. Students may enter the curriculum at any point. Please contact the Youth language school curriculum coordinator, Anna Maria Jaker, with questions regarding curriculum and/or placement. 

Parent volunteers organize informal opportunities for students and their parents to meet and interact with other families in more casual social settings. Previous outings have included a trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, sledding and an authentic Italian winter meal at Powderhorn Park, a trip to the Caponi Art Park and Learning Center and making pizzas as guests of the Uptown Punch Pizza.
