School holiday fun in Italy doesn’t look much different to school holiday fun in Australia. Just a bunch of kids taking time out of school and having fun with family and friends. Life is never about where you are but more about who you spend it with. Italy.... Australia ... same same
Classes for term 1 are full but if you are interested in learning the dolce lingua I have a waiting list. Send in your enrolment form and I’ll keep in touch !
A ‘Cannolo workshop’ is being organised for mid February. If you’d like to join a workshop send me an email. email@example.com
Did ‘la befana’ come and visit you last night ? Did she leave ‘caramelle’ or ‘carbone’? Here’s a picture of the once upon a time ‘calze’ that were left for her to fill. So simple and so cute. Just a plain old sock taken from the underwear drawer. When things were all about tradition.

Finally sitting down to organise class placements for returning and new ‘studenti’. Glad the ‘natale’ and ‘capodanno’ whirlwind has passed and was lots of fun!
Term 1 begins on January the 29th and I’m aching to get back into the classroom 〰️ @the_little_italian_school
Ready to open the door to a brand new school year!
Looking forward to embracing all of the new students, language classes and workshops it will bring.

Positano. I’m more about people than places. Travelling to visit landmarks and famous ‘things’ means nothing to me. But there’s something that always draws me back to Positano. Maybe it’s the beach or the people, or maybe the architecture... But I never tire of Positano’s classic timeless beauty and that warm energy that is Southern Italy. We are just lucky to always be able to enjoy it with family and life long friends! #positano#thelittleitalianschool @the_little_italian_school
When my 93 yr old nonna walks into the room. Che dolcezza ! My son always cuddles her so tight. This is what life is all about. Nonni, children, family and relationships... and not much else is really very important. I’m so lucky to have her #amore#nonna#bisnonna#thelittleitalianschool @the_little_italian_school
Il presepio. In every church, every house and a lot of piazza’s, it’s probably one of the most important Christmas decorations in Italy. The birth of Gesù bambino.
Tonight is ‘la vigilia di natale’. Traditionally Italians eat a seafood based meal with their family and may even go to mass (but the youth often go to ‘la discoteca’ instead!)
Have a wonderful Christmas Eve however you choose to spend it 💫

Aqua in bocca. This is a phrase in Italian used after you’ve told someone a secret.
Word for word: water in mouth.
Meaning: mum’s the word, it’s a secret.
It’s very clever! It’s impossible to speak when your mouth is full of water!
