Our Intermediate course covers the B2 level in the common European framework of reference.
Piccoli Amici I (4-6 years old)
Learning through play is the cornerstone of successful education at this age because it gives students the chance to practice what they are learning in creative ways. With this in mind, Piccoli Amici I ("Little Friends"), is a child-only class for kids ages 4 to 6 year olds that focuses on building vocabulary with an emphasis on communication and early writing and reading skills through games, arts and crafts, stories, songs and imaginative play. Piccoli Amici II is offered at some language centers for children in this age range who have taken at least 2-3 sessions of Piccoli Amici I or who have the prior approval of the teacher. This class will have either a book or a material fee payable on the first day of class.
