Language Maintenance


The ICCW started in March 2016 at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff a programme of Italian language courses for the children and teenagers of Italian families , or of Italian descent, residing in Wales.

This programme is supported by Mazzini-Garibaldi Charitable Foundation.

We believe that linguistic diversity is an essential part of being human. If we lose that, we lose a part of our humanity. The aim of our language maintenance courses is to encourage bilingualism/plurilingualism and give our students the tools to live among two or more languages and cultures without feeling that these are separate entities.
