ditals preparation course in florenceTarget participants: for all who would like to learn methods and techniques to be qualified to teach Italian as a second language. The course is aimed at acquiring the relevant teaching skills to join the professional field of teaching Italian to foreigners.

Objectives: the Ditals certification, awarded by the University for Foreigners of Siena, is a qualification that is now required by all public and private institutions working in the field of Italian as a second language. The Leonardo da Vinci School in Florence has collaborated for a number of years with the University for Foreigners of Siena and it is a Monitoring Board and recognised examination centre for this certification.

Course description: this course for teachers is made up of 36 hours of lessons, aimed at obtaining the necessary didactic skills to be able to work teaching Italian as a second or foreign language. The theoretical basis is taught alongside the latest teaching techniques to develop language skills, together with workshops in which participants work on the analysis and didacticism of linguistic materials. From the second week of the course, a complimentary internship lasting 60 hours is offered to participants, where they flank school teachers and, under tutor supervision, prepare activities to be presented in classes of different levels of language proficiency. There are also exam simulations which are subsequently corrected and discussed, first individually and then in plenum. The course takes place three times a year and the teachers specialise in teaching the Italian language to foreigners.

Alessandro Roffi student of italian language in florence

I attended the DITALS Preparation Course in Scuola Leonardo da Vinci in Florence in 2012. I found myself in a joyful and stimulating environment, with many students who were enthusiastic about studying Italian and many good teachers, always ready to help. The lecturers provided us with the necessary tools to get ready to the exam in the best way possible. The course was really formative: I learnt a lot enjoying the time thanks to the high level of professionallity of the teachers. Taking a course and doing my internship in this school gave me the opportunity of growing professionally speaking. I recommend anyone interested in working in this field to go through this kind of experience and attend this course!
