la scuola primaria
Today’s Parola del Giorno continues our story of Teresa as she makes her way from l’asilo to la scuola primaria, which translates as elementary school.
Primary (or elementary) school in Italy lasts for five years, which is more or less similar to school systems in the United States.
See the noun used below:
A Teresa piaceva la scuola primaria perché imparava tante cose nuove: inglese, geografia e arte. Ma soprattutto: aveva tante nuove amiche.
Teresa likes elementary school because she is learning so many new things: English, geography, and art. But, most of all: she had so many new friends.
