C.A.S.IT., the state’s leading organization in promoting the Italian language in Massachusetts schools, has a new and revamped website, where students, parents and teachers can find all the information needed to learn, practice and promote the language of Dante.
The organization’s mission is to assist communities that wish to introduce, preserve, rejuvenate or broaden the study of the Italian language in their schools. C.A.S.IT. (which stands for Centro Attività Scolastiche Italiane) offers grants of varying amounts for the establishment of Italian language and cultural programs with the ultimate purpose to institute Italian as a subject in the school curriculum.
The organization also provides adult Italian language classes, divided in two levels: “Travel and Conversation” and “Elementary Italian.” The courses take place during the fall, winter and spring.
Promoting the Italian language will be at the center of C.A.S.IT.’s focus in 2013, which has been declared the year of Italian Language and Culture.
C.A.S.IT., under the auspices of the Italian Consulate of Boston, therefore invites those who wish to learn the Italian language, for travelers, heritage speakers and all who want to celebrate the innumerable contributions of Italy to world civilization, to enroll in their new adult education program of Italian courses held at C.A.S.IT.’s office in Wakefield.
