Welcome to Piccoli Passi - an online Italian language program for young children! Classes occur in 8 week sessions and all material is delivered via email. Each week, we'll explore a new theme, with a variety of activities that introduce the Italian language through art, stories, songs and plenty of play. Join us as we take Piccoli Passi – or “baby steps” – to learning Italian!
Here's what parents are saying about Piccoli Passi ... My daughter has been learning Italian since she was 6 months old. We try speaking to her in Italian as do my (Italian) in-laws. I noticed a very big improvement in her Italian language skills since beginning the Piccoli Passi class. Without being prompted, she sings songs, counts items in Italian (over English!) and teaches us each week what she has learned in class using her Italian skills. My three-year old even taught me the days of the week! She genuinely loves this class and looks forward to it every week! Thank you Signora Ferrante for making learning so much fun! -Kirsten
My 2.5 year old son loved going to Italian class. My son is very shy but he was comfortable with Signora Ferrante from the beginning. Her lessons are professional, well-planned and the kids have so much fun. She provided excellent email communications and take-home activities that allowed me to be part of his learning. This is such a great way to introduce kids to the idea of another language! - Allison
My children love Italian classes with Signora Ferrante! Each class is carefully crafted with fun and creative activities for the students, all while being conducted in Italian. I highly recommend the lessons to anyone who is looking for a wonderful cultural, linguistic and interactive experience in Italian! - Tiffany
