Learning outcomes

At the end of the course students will have maintained their previous language abilities and will have acquired specialised lexis for the teaching of English in Italian primary schools and for introducing CLIL activities. Students will develop an awareness of culture and language skills in a prospect of lifelong learning with the aim of taking part in cultural exchanges and making contact with foreigner speaking partners, and developing awareness of culural tolerance and social harmony, and inclusion.

Course contents

A content based approach to language development.

Students will have the opportunity to exercise and improve their English through the study of techniques for teaching English in Italian primary schools. Students will be presented with a variety of activities in a workshop format. These will look at ways of improving lexical skills, reading and writing speaking and listening as well as play-based approaches to introducing grammar, songs and drama aspects of CLIL and the teaching of English in primary classroom.

In addition to methodology, we will be working on language and lexis, writing skills, as well as using various CLIL materials.
