English Speaking Schools in Italy
English has become a compulsory language in schools in Italy. Kids
from as young as four or five are learning it in Scuola Elementaria.
Italians realise how important English has become - and you will often
hear it being expressed as a passport to the world. However, at the
moment there is a big learning gap between Scuola Media and Superiore.
Most of the Medie are situated in small towns or villages on top of
the hills, and the areas all speak their own particular type of dialect.
The children are lively and mostly undisciplined but at the same time
they are enthusiastic about learning English. There are some teachers
in the Scuole Medie who are very well spoken and trained to a high level
to teach English and then there is the other side of the coin-teachers
who don't even understand simple conversation because they haven't learned
English very well themselves. This inconsistency is then carried on
through the pupils into Scuola Superiore.
