Teaching Italian as a second language is one of the subjects we need to deal with when we talk about social integration of foreign students in and outside the school.

This refresher course for teachers has two objectives. First, to help them to optimize their teaching intervention through a detailed analysis of what has been learned and what is actually learnable by the student.

Beside that, the purpose is to help teachers to gain a deeper knowlegde of the latest methodology in language teaching through the creation of new materials based on cooperative learning and task-based teaching.

The training style is interactive, with workshops as well as presentations, and intended to promote discussion.

The participants will be asked to prepare some materials that will be presented and discussed with fellow professionals in class.

The price is 440 euros.

This includes:

  • 20 hours (6 modules, 3 hours each plus 2 final hours)
  • all learning materials
  • main references
  • course certificate
