A fully communicative approach to the teaching of Italian Language
The school adopts a fully communicative approach to the teaching of Italian that is continually up-dated. Language is never presented out of context and grammar, phonology, lexis and all other features of actual language used in everyday situations are analysed. A wide variety of up-to-date authentic material is used in class, thus giving the students valuable information about modern-day Italian culture and society at the same time as developing the students' authentic linguistic and communicative skills.
"Communicative tasks, group work, and role-play are amongst the principal techniques and procedures employed in class. The accent is on activity rather than on passive receptivity."
