Brief description
A multimedia course of Italian second language in episodes, intended for children of foreign mother tongue. The course can be used, in Italy and abroad, in situations of bilingual schools, when Italian is learned as a second language.
The units, each of which is published online progressively once a month, encourage the attention of the students: on the oral and written language; on the most used lexicon and communication formulas and on linguistic structures; reading and understanding written texts and speaking.
 Starting from an initial level, the course aims to develop a communicative and linguistic competence of the Italian language corresponding to levels A1 and A2 and to inaugurate access to the B1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
