Students in Year Three to Year Six will participate in the CIAO Italia online program.
CIAO (Collaborative Italian Access Online) is an exciting online program offered by the Italo-Australian Welfare & Cultural Centre Inc (IAWCC). The oral component of the program is delivered weekly via Skype with a teacher from IAWCC. The lessons are conducted in simple Italian, using pictures, gestures and other clues to facilitate the learning and classroom teachers join in and help out during each online lesson. Each Skype lesson is followed by a practical task to consolidate learning and provide the opportunity for students to practice reading and writing in Italian.
