Teacher Refresher Course

Teacher Refresher Course

It is a 1-week programme with a very practical approach. The focus of the course is General Italian to Adults. A solid grounding is provided in teaching skills and techniques. We are aware that teachers come to Italy to keep in touch with the language in a general way in addition to working in the classroom, so that you can attend a language course ( from the perspective of a foreign learner) according to your level of italian and / or work in peer with a teacher trainer. So far the program is well designed also for teachers who aren't native italian speakers and don't live in Italy.

The programme includes 30 hours/week
