Signora Hoerle and her Italian students met with 7th and 8th graders at Burlington’s Marshall Simonds Middle School. After the introductions, Signora Hoerle and her Italian V students taught the middle school students the essential vocabulary words they needed to understand a short skit. The high school kids acted out the skit while Signora Hoerle engaged the middle school students by asking listening comprehension questions. The middle school students were amazing. They participated, responded to the questions in the target language, and were very engaged throughout. In addition, the Italian Club President Kavya Sebastian presented the video made by Italian V students (posted below). The middle school kids really loved the presentation and had a lot of questions about the BHS Italian Program at the end.
