An Intergenerational Family Squabble

Dear Italian readers,

Watch this short video. A Sicilian grandmother is talking to her granddaughter who lives in the U.K.
The old Italian woman is speaking in Sicilian and the kid doesn’t understand a word and responds to her grandmother in gibberish trying to imitate her sound. The little girl doesn’t speak Sicilian or Italian but she wants to give it a try in a funny way.
Isn’t language fantastic? How similar is this kid’s behavior to our method of learning Italian We should all emulate this kid’s spirit in our classes.
Welcome to our 2016 Winter session!
