Spring/Summer Group Italian Lessons
Friday, April 4, 2008 9:45 PM
Ciao a Tutti...
I can't believe it's already time to begin setting up the next session of Group Italian lessons in the North End. This will be the 4th consecutive "session", and for the first time, the program will continue through much of the summer. This program has grown from 10 students learning at 1 level, to more than 40 students learning at 4 different levels. My goal is to eventually adhere to a European Framework of Language Learning and offer 6 levels...all distinct, suiting everyone's language-learning needs (from the true beginners to the advanced).
This program is more than just about learning and practicing the language...it's about building relationships and sharing experiences. My present students can attest to that, and most of them have indicated to me that they plan to continue growing with the program, and improving their language skills.
The foundation of the program is language learning, but the goal of the program is to also eventually afford students an opportunity to experience life in Italy through personalized, small-group trips focusing on immersion and assimilation into the Italian culture and life-style.
Trips of this nature to Italy will begin in May of 2009, and will go on throughout the summer as I will be offering anywhere from 2-4 week "educational/cultural" experiences in some of the most memorable locations in Italy.
I hope to hear from some of you members of this Boston Italian Language Meetup Group, who I have never heard from before, so I can better explain my program and also have an opportunity to connect with you on a more personal basis....
If you have an interest in joining one of the Italian classes that I am offering this Spring/Summer, please feel free to email me at [address removed], or at [address removed]. I may also be reached by cell phone at [masked].
Spero di conoscervi presto!
