We believe in teaching Italian from an early age. We offer classes for children ages 2.5-14 so they can learn Italian as a second language or learn and build new skills.
Italian School NJ has developed its own sequential curriculums following the requirements of the Common European Frameworks so that children will learn the language through the years through age appropriate activities. Attention is given to 4 skills: listening and comprehension, ability to speak, read and write Italian (when applicable).
