    Hi! My daughter is a rising third grader and will turn 9 in November. Her Italian isn’t as strong as it could be, but she’s on the cusp of fluency (she just spent a month in a summer camp in Italy). I assume it’s best to put her with the 6-8 year olds but not the beginners, but also not ages 9+, which could be intimidating for her. Does this sound right? Thanks!

    Just wondering if it is good for my daughters who are aged 10 and 12 and are complete beginners. They are very artsy and love anything physical, too.
