Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language


Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language

This is a basic training programme for teachers of Italian as a foreign language.
The duration of the course is 150 hours over 5 weeks, Monday to Friday, from 10am to 5pm.

The course is made of methodology sessions, teaching practice and observations of professional teachers. Thanks to the practical nature of the course, participants will have the opportunity to teach in a classroom from the very first week, putting into practice the techniques learned during the methodology sessions while learning the underlying theoretical principals. The training takes place with the support and under the supervision of expert trainers.
Towards the end of the course, there will be sessions focused on work opportunities, where trainers will provide practical advice and will show websites and lists of schools, agencies and universities that offer job opportunities for Italian teachers.

During the training, participants will learn to:

  • Plan a lesson and a whole course for different levels.
  • Use new technologies for language teaching and learning.
  • Create authentic materials.
  • Tailor textbook materials to specific needs.
  • Deliver both one-to-one and group lessons.

At the end of the training participants will be awarded a certificate that is recognised and/or accepted by private schools and universities.

The admission to the course is subject to an entry test and interview.
