Simply because Italian for Kids (Bella Lingua) teaches language through living it. The teachers bring the words and phrases to life through providing the experience in reality. Children see it, hear it, touch it and do it, and through this they live the language. This is why Italian for Kids is successful because through experience children remember.
Why Choose Italian for Kids - Bella Lingua?
Experience Teaching Children and Adults
She has taught both children and adults all over the world, in schools and businesses in Melbourne, London and Barcelona. Her experience includes teaching languages, literacy, numeracy, physical education, art, history, cultural studies, dance, drama, geography and music. She also holds a full registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching, and has been since they have been formed. Daniela has now become an official Category 1 member of the Australian Tutoring Association (ATA), based in Sydney. You’ll be able to find Daniela under Bella Lingua on their website www.ata.edu.au under ‘Find A Tutor’.
I love Daniela’s passion and dedication and the developmental growth of languages, as well as the grammar teaching. The correction of the current language is used and it’s individualized. The storytelling is a great aspect and so is the book borrowing. The FUN makes Micaela want to go and learn more. The progression of learning is faster than I thought it might be. Micaela had been going to two other Italian schools since she was 13 months old. Bella Lingua far surpasses the content and the structure of the others and the children, namely Micaela are learning so much more not because of the extra time or the one on one but because of the content. Thank you so much for answering my original email Daniela.

Con gli auguri più affettuosi per un Felice Natale e Anno Nuovo a Lei e famiglia e un ringraziamento speciale per tutto che stai facendo per la mia nipotina Jessica. Your Belli Bimbi classes are a credit to your professionalism, enthusiasm and sheer joy when interacting with the children. Jessica looks forward to the classes each week with enthusiasm and delight, as do I. We look forward to seeing you in 2018. Happy holidays, Love Maria e Jessica.

I loved the positive consistent vibrant energy from Daniela; she brings warmth, passion, fun to every single lesson. Each lesson is different and interesting with varied styles of learning from craft, storytelling, singing, and dancing. It’s fun, making it easy to learn and get involved. Stella enjoys every lesson and is left feeling happy afterward singing and dancing in Italian at home -a testament to Daniela.

From the first time Claudia and I came to one of your sessions at Ivanhoe Library, I loved your warmth and passion. And not surprisingly, so does Claudia. She is always looking forward to her days with you and your program has helped her develop so much both personality wise and language-wise. Have a wonderful christmas and we look forward to seeing you in the new year of 2018.

THANK YOU FOR AN EXCELLENT TERM 1, 2016
“I have been meaning to email you since last Friday’s session, to say a huge THANK YOU for the wonderful work you do with our children! Zoe and Olivia absolutely LOVE coming to Italian classes on Fridays and are asking me throughout the week when is it time to come to Italian. You go to so much effort, and always go above and beyond. The girls had a ball last week doing BUONA PASQUA. The hand made books which you prepared for each student were gorgeous, and so thoughtful. Thank you so much, your passion is beaming through and we are very lucky to have a great teacher like you! Have a lovely Easter Break and we look forward to seeing you next term.”

“Thanks for these emails. I was just blown away at lunch today. We did a little bit of practicing in the car after class yesterday and a tiny bit with my husband before dinner. Then today I had some prawns in my noodles for lunch and I asked Gil if he would like one. I gave him one and out of the blue he said “uno per me”. I was gob smacked! We hadn’t said anything since yesterday!”
Jackie – La mamma di Gilbert

All of the props (puppets, art accessories, collage, worksheets, sequins etc… are so colourful and engaging for children, songs and all work have been so thoughtful, appropriate and well done! Thank you for your friendliness and efforts in engaging shy, little Clara!! Mille grazie Daniela!”

“The various strategies you use have been very valuable. It’s been great watching the children evolve. I’m so happy to see/hear the kids use the Italian language outside the lesson. This has never been achieved with Jaeden and we are very grateful for your teaching perserverance. Mille Grazie Daniela”
Tracey – La mamma di Jaeden & Lachlan
“It’s a great way for kids to learn beginners Italian with games and songs to reinforce the words.”
