Finalmente! Lezioni di Italiano per bambini! We are finally opening a children class to learn Italian in a fun and unconventional way. The teacher will use games, story time,songs, role playing and play time as her teaching methodology. Her assistant happens to be my six years old grandniece who just moved here with her parents from Italy! She only speaks Italian, has a bubbly personality and is very excited to help me out and to share her language with other children in the United States! This class will available to 8 children between the ages of 4 and 7. The class has a limited number of students in order to assure individualized attention and will fill up fast so RSVP as soon as possible. Once the number is reached the class will be closed and a waiting list will be available. The first session will run every Sunday from July 17 to September 18 for a total of 10 classes. Cost for classes is $200 for 10 weeks and is non refundable. If you should miss a class you have the option to recuperate the lesson with a private class.I will credit $20 towards a private lesson.
Salve! I have been teaching students all over the world via Skype for quite some time now and I would like to extend the opportunity to all members of All Italian Things Club. This is a very convenient way to take classes as you eliminate travel time, gas money and you can interact with your teacher and learn in the comfort of your home! You set the time, the date and the frequency provided that the teacher is available. This is also a great way to recuperate on missed lessons or when not feeling up to traveling to see me personally. I can guarantee that the lessons work! I am right there in your monitor! All you need is a computer, of course and Skype downloaded! You can pay as you go $50 per person per hour or $400 for a series of ten hours prepaid. These classes are customized and tailored to your specific needs and are treated like private lessons. In other words there is the same flexibility and you don't loose a class if you miss a class provided you give the teacher 24 hr. notice. If you have a friend or relative that wants to join your class, each additional person pays an additional $25 per hour or $200 for 10 hours prepaid. Send me a message if you would like to get started! A presto!
We are starting a new series of 8 Italian classes This class is a group class ( minimum 3 students) for beginning level and will be held once a week ( Saturdays) for one hour of grammar + conversation + laughter and fun!. Although grammar is the foundation of any language we stress the conversational aspect and practice Italian speaking. What good is it to know how to read notes, or listen to music if you have an instrument and you can't play it? Language is sound and we want to hear your voice! All materials will be provided but please bring a notebook and pencil for your notes. This is a light class and "molto divertente"(lots of fun). Come alone or bring a friend , grab a "panino" or a cappuccino from the cafe' and let's enjoy an Italian morning together! I assure you will be looking forward to this weekend gathering!! You will learn not only the technique of the language but also aspects of the Italian culture, interesting facts about our traditions, idiomatic expressions, and travel tips. The cost of this session is $160 for 8 weeks. Should you miss a class for any reason you will have the opportunity to make up the class, provided that we have an ongoing group class, or you will be given a $20 credit towards a private class.For more information don't hesitate to contact me via e-mail or call[masked] Classes are limited to 8 students so sign up quickly! Hope to see you there! A presto! Sandra Sicolo
The intermediate class if for students that have completed the beginners level and are ready to move forward. We will be using the book by Barron's : "Learn Italian the fast & fun way" but I will integrate materials such as worksheets and foto copies of lessons that are not covered in the book. The goal. as usual, is to have you speaking so role playing, games and improve exercises will be part of our lessons. Don't forget to bring a pencil and notebook to take notes. We will also talk about cultural aspects of Italy and learn about folklore, traditions, recipes and geography. The class is ongoing so you can jump in anytime provided you are at level. I can make the determination by speaking to you over the phone for a few minutes. The cost for each session is $160 for eight consecutive weeks. Should you miss a class . a $20 credit towards a private class ($40 per hour) will be given to the student and a make up lesson will be arranged. Once you have reached this point in your language learning adventure, there is no turning back! I must say: You are hooked for life! Bene, divertiamoci con la bella lingua! A presto! Sandra
