sintesi italiano

Il Corso di lingua italiana, promosso da Rondine Cittadella della Pace, associazione onlus che da più di 10 anni svolge un ruolo attivo nella promozione della cultura del dialogo e della pace tramite l’esperienza concreta dello Studentato Internazionale (qui convivono e studiano studenti provenienti da paesi in conflitto), è un corso che si svolge ogni anno a Rondine dal 2006. L’obiettivo del corso di lingua è fornire agli studenti partecipanti (una trentina) una preparazione di livello B1 con una particolare attenzione all’area del parlare, dell’ascoltare, del leggere e dello scrivere. La peculiarità del progetto, ed il suo carattere innovativo, risiede proprio nei suoi destinatari, ovvero studenti dai 18 ai 35 anni provenienti da una molteplicità di contesti, culture e religioni differenti. Essi provengono infatti da aree in conflitto come il Medio Oriente, il Caucaso, i Balcani, l’Africa, ma anche da India, Grecia, Romania, in rappresentanza di credi e religioni differenti (cattolica, musulmana, ebrea, ortodossa). In questo modo gli studenti, oltre ad apprendere la lingua italiana, imparano a conoscere ed apprezzare la cultura dell’altro e del “diverso”. Al termine del corso, alcuni studenti si iscrivono a corsi di laurea o master, altri si inseriscono nel mondo lavorativo (anche attraverso stage), in particolare nel settore commerciale e turistico. Durante il corso, della durata di tre mesi (luglio-settembre), gli studenti vengono messi fin da subito a contatto con la lingua target attraverso la presentazione di testi orali e scritti. La struttura e le regole del sistema linguistico vengono così scoperte dai discenti che riflettono e poi verificano la comprensione attraverso la collaborazione e la partecipazione attiva alla costruzione di una conoscenza collettiva. I progressi nella propria capacità di comprendere e produrre lingua scritta e parlata vengono quindi periodicamente autovalutati e poi discussi con i docenti. I corsisti possono poi usufruire di attività individuali e di gruppo come giochi di ruolo, proiezioni, attività didattiche multimediali, seminari di cultura, conversazioni in lingua italiana con volontari madrelingua dell’Associazione Rondine, momenti ricreativi come gite, escursioni e cacce al tesoro per la città. Come strumentazione vengono utilizzati: lettore CD per l’ascolto di programmi radio, canzoni e interviste, proiettore per la visione di documentari e film, immagini per sviluppare le abilità di produzione scritta e orale, materiali creati ad hoc dagli insegnanti (esercizi, riepiloghi, presentazioni ed analisi di strutture morfosintattiche). Autonomamente gli studenti hanno inoltre visitato molti siti web contenenti esercizi per migliorare la lingua, dizionari interattivi, brani sonori, il tutto nell’ottica dell’autoapprendimento e del rispetto dei diversi stili cognitivi. Al fine di verificare l’apprendimento della lingua, sono state infine somministrati tre esami nei mesi di luglio, agosto e settembre.


sintesi inglese

Italian language course, promoted by Rondine Cittadella della Pace, non profit association which has an active role from more than ten years promoting dialogue and peace through the International Hall of Residence’s concrete experience (in which students coming from countries in conflict live and study together), takes place every year in Rondine since 2006. The language course’s goal is to give students (approx thirty) a B1 level preparation, with particular attention on speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. The main aspect of the project, and its innovative element, consists in the people it is aimed at: students between eighteen-years-old and thirty-five-years-old coming from many different environments, cultures and religions. Not only do they come from geographical areas in conflict such as Middle East, Caucasus, Balkans, Africa but also they come from India, Greece, and Romania in representation of different creeds and religions (catholic, Muslim, Jewish, orthodox). In this way not only do they learn the Italian language, but also they learn to know and appreciate the culture of “diversity. At the end of the class, some of the students enter in masters or post-degree classes, others start working (by internships too), especially in trade and tourism sectors. During the courses, lasting for three months (from July to September), students are in touch with target vocabulary through written and spoken text presentations. Linguistic system’s structures and rules are found out by learners who think about them and check their comprehension by cooperation and active participation in the creation of a common knowledge. Progresses in their own skills in the comprehension and production of written and spoken language are periodically self-tested and discussed with the teachers. Students also do individual and team activities such as role plays, multimedia scholar activities, projections, and cultural events, Italian language conversations with Association Rondine’s native speaker volunteers, relaxing moments such as excursions, tours, and treasure hunts around the town… Accessories are: CD players for listening to radio programs, songs, and interviews, projectors to see documentaries and films, images to develop speaking and writing skills, materials made by the teachers (exercises, recaps, grammar and spelling analysis). Autonomously, students have visited many web sites containing exercises to improve language knowledge, interactive dictionaries, sound texts, all about self-learning and respect for different knowledge styles. Three exams have been established, to test language learning, in July, August and September.
