I am Italian and my husband is American. We are trying to raise our 16-month-old son bilingual, so we always seek ways to expose him to the Italian language and culture. I will never forget the ecstatic look on his face when we first attended an Insieme a Chicago class: hey, mommy was not the only one speaking in a different way!!! We have had a lot of fun playing and singing together with other children and Barbara, and we plan on following several other classes. It’s a fun way for children and grown-ups to learn and socialize.
