First Level Certificate DILS-PG for Teaching Italian as a Second Language: an opportunity to improve teaching knowledge and skills


The University for Foreigners is organizing its first Erasmus Staff Week event, specifically dedicated to the DILS.

During the course participants will be able, using an exam DILS-PG – First Level past paper, to systematize basic theoretical knowledge related to language teaching and metalanguage. At the same time, they will be able to develop methodological-didactic awareness and practical skills useful for teaching in an effective and targeted manner.
