Italian classes for children in Brooklyn, at LLS

 

The Language and Laughter Studio (LLS) constantly strives to create a community of families from diverse cultural backgrounds in order to foster an inclusive environment in which every child and parent feels welcome. We have developed, over the past twelve years, innovative tools to teach languages to children.

We are thrilled to announce the launching of our Italian classes for children in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.

These classes will be taught by Serena Scoccimarro. Serena was born and raised in Milano, Italy, and moved to Brooklyn with her family in 2006. Since her arrival in the United States, she has worked with children at various schools, including the Rudolf Steiner School in Manhattan. She enjoys leading creative workshops and engages her attentive audience with stories and games.

Here is a presentation of our Italian classes for children 6 months – 10 years :

I BRUCHI (The Caterpillars)
Puppets, Stories and Songs in Italian
Wednesday 9:30am – 10:15am

In a relaxed and nurturing environment, the little ones will enter the world of Italian language through traditional and contemporary songs and rhyming verses (« ninne nanne, canzoncine e filastrocche ») to bring home and share with the rest of the family. The children and their caregivers will be gently invited to participate in a circle and attend interactive puppet shows (« i burattini »). Sign up here
LE FARFALLE (The Butterflies)
Preschool Class in Italian
Wednesday 10:30am – 12:00pm

The Preschool Class in Italian offers a unique, creative experience for young children. Our early immersion program is an entertaining way to learn Italian as well as a gentle introduction to the school environment. Traditional and contemporary Italian songs, rhymes, tales, interactive puppet shows (« canzoncine, filastrocche e burattini ») will introduce the little ones to a variety of media, tastes, smells, textures, colors and sounds. Art activities will trigger lots of laughter and paint stains (« un pasticcio di colori »)! Sign up here
IL LABORATORIO DI ITALIANO (The Italian Workshop)
Monday 3:30pm – 5:00pm
Age: 4 – 6 years 
Language level: all welcome
Our drop-off Italian program is designed for children aged from 4 to 6 years old. They will embark on a journey through the Italian language. Active and engaging creative workshops will integrate art, movement and songs. Whether your child already speaks Italian, or is just introduced to the Italian language, this class will allow her/him to have fun while speaking the language, building vocabulary and grammar skills through songs and art projects. This class will be conducted in Italian. A healthy « merenda » (snack) will be served during each class. Sign up here
POMERIGGI ITALIANI (Italian Afternoons)
Wednesday 3:30pm – 5:00pm
Age: 6 – 10 years
Language level: previous exposure to the Italian language
Our drop-off Italian program is designed for children aged from 6 to 10 years old who had a previous exposure to the Italian language. The goal of this class is to build children’s confidence in active and relevant ways, so that they feel comfortable speaking, reading and writing in Italian. They will be engaged in art projects and theatre games inspired by the characters of Italo Calvino’s books and in creative language games inspired by the works of the writer Gianni Rodari. This class will be conducted in Italian. A healthy « merenda » (snack) will be served during each class.  Sign up here

A presto!
