Il Punto's NOI (Not an Ordinary Italian) Program, taught by native speakers, immerses children from toddler to 12 in the Italian language through an engaging environment of play and conversation.
Three class levels — Cubs, Koala, and Panda — range from beginners to proficient Italian speakers.
Early exposure to a second language not only increases the likelihood of gaining language proficiency, but it has been shown to improve a wide variety of cognitive skills. The most effective way for children to learn a second language is to put them in situations where language surrounds them.
