COURSES OFFERED TO YOUTH ATTENDING HOLIDAY- CAMPS (COLONIA) PROGRAM
To the visitor:
The holiday-camp programs (Colonie) host the children of Italians who emigrated. This is an important and very popular program because students from all over the world have the opportunity to return and discover their Italian heritage. Their visit enables them to tour all of Sicily and to immerse themselves, for the duration of their stay, in the Italian culture.
Siculiana is a community that has much to offer and is a “must stop” in the itinerary of any holiday-camp program.
The Linguistic Centre at Castello Torre Salsa in Siculiana offers a “not to be missed” holiday-camp Italian Language Program.
The Program is a three-day session of songs, music, conversations and games intended to motivate and strengthen the students’ appreciation of their Italian culture and their communication skills. This program introduces or reinforces the Italian language for the student in a fun and dynamic way, through games and a software teaching tool which the student will take home.
The language software is a teaching tool, interactive in both the spoken and written word, which the student will take home to continue practicing Italian. This tool challenges the student, strengthens basic Italian knowledge, and enriches the student’s knowledge.
To the resident:
Whether the “holiday-camp” student is from a Spanish, German
or Hungarian speaking country etc. the Linguistic Centre at Castello Torre Salsa
will provide the teacher for anyone in Sicily who wishes to learn to communicate
to some extent with the camp students in their native tongue.
