The course includes a broad-based training, in order to take into account the professional needs of Italian L2 / FL teachers, in Italy and abroad, and to be offered at the same time to all interested parties (trainers, head teachers, scholars, students, teachers) the possibility to deepen specific methodological-didactic and linguistic-cultural aspects.

The lessons include both seminars and workshops, and aim to solicit ideas and reflections on the topics addressed and allow practical applications of the methodologies presented.

Credits are to be awarded at the end of the course. The course consists of 2 weeks of lessons, 30 hours each week, and includes a final assessment. This test will be mandatory only for those who are interested in obtaining, in addition to the certificate of participation, also the educational credits provided (6 ECTS for the entire course, 3 ECTS for each week).

The course is proposed twice a year, in the months of January and July, to meet the needs of both teachers of Italian schools of all levels and teachers who teach abroad.

Those interested can register for one or both weeks of the course or even individual days.

While maintaining its intrinsic unity, the course is divided into 3 Modules:


Methodological module

Coordinator: Daria Coppola

The activities focus on new frontiers of language teaching and good teaching practices, taking into account the results of different disciplines, from psycholinguistics to sociolinguistics, from neuroscience to information and communication theory.

Linguistic module

Coordinator: Lidia Costamagna

The activities focus on the Italian language in its various aspects and levels (phonetic and phonological, morphological, syntactic, lexical and semantic, pragmatic, textual), with in-depth studies on topical issues and subjects of greater interests.

Cultural module

Coordinator: Giovanni Capecchi

The activities focus on significant aspects of today's cultural context in Italy, with literary, historical-social, political and artistic insights.
