Bilingual/Advanced Track

I corsi bilingue/avanzati sono strutturati per bambini già abitualmente esposti alla lingua italiana nella vita quotidiana. Per accedere a questi corsi non è richiesta una produzione linguistica avanzata, anche se si rende necessaria un’ottima comprensione della lingua.

Le lezioni settimanali, della durata di 60 minuti, sono condotte esclusivamente in italiano da insegnanti laureati e madrelingua, o dotati di una conoscenza linguistica dell’italiano paragonabile a quella di un insegnante madrelingua. L’enfasi del programma sarà sulla graduale acquisizione di un livello di lettura avanzato, dell‘abilità di scrivere e di usare la grammatica correttamente man mano che lo studente progredisce attraverso i tre livelli previsti. Inizialmente gli studenti potranno accedere a qualsiasi livello, a seconda delle loro capacità. Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma, o sul piazzamento degli studenti, si prega di contattare la nuova direttrice del programma linguistico per ragazzi, Luisa Narducci O'Gara  luisaogara@hotmail.com

Di tanto in tanto genitori volontari organizzano attività di svago in cui studenti e genitori hanno la possibilità di incontrarsi con altre famiglie allo scopo di conoscersi e socializzare. Le escursioni realizzate in passato hanno incluso una visita al Minneapolis Institute of Art, una giornata in slitta con autentico pasto italiano invernale a Powderhorn Park, un’escursione al Caponi Art Park and Learning Center e una visita alla pizzeria Punch, dove gli studenti hanno avuto modo di partecipare alla preparazione della pizza.

    A 60 minute immersion lesson, following a school wide snack, for elementary school bilingual children. Students will develop good reading and writing, from special sounds (digrammi) to entire words and sentences; they will learn basic elements of grammar (articolo, nouns, pronouns, presente indicativo), and continue to expand vocabulary and oral communication skills through interactive songs, stories, games and imaginative play. Contemporary Italian culture, age appropriate literature, traditional holidays, and geography will be emphasized.

    Students will use the Raccontami 2 textbook for both vocabulary expansion and basic grammar, plus a series of workbooks developed by Anna Maria Jaker for practicing together in class the use of special sounds and parts of speech. The  purchase of Raccontami 2 is optional because the school will provide enough books to share in the class. However if you prefer to buy your own textbook it can be purchased by parents before the first day of class.
