Year 5 Italian beginners make smooth progress

IGS Head of Languages Junior School Vilma Rotellini is proud of her 2020 class of Year 5 Beginners Italian students.

It’s not easy to immerse yourself in a new language for 10 periods a week but this group of students has done so with great enthusiasm and rather spectacular results,” Vilma said.

Students have enjoyed embracing the cultural aspects of Italy including, dancing La Tarantella and of course Italian food. 

“During the past few weeks, they have made their families bruschetta, insalata caprese and la lasagna.”

Students have thrown themselves into interpreting their workbooks, in turn creating their own texts about their cooking activities.
