Our school is a comprehensive institute, made up by kindergarden, primary school and middle school. The total amount of kids is about 350. Therefore we are quite a small school in the Italian Alps
I graduated in foreign languages and literatures from the University degli studi di Milano, majoring in English and taking also Germn and Russian. I am a teacher of English.
I am very good good and fluent in English. I lived in the USA for a year as exchange student.
I am waiting to take the proficiency test in English
Both the teachers of foreign languages and the parents agree on the importance of developing language skills and they think something more should be done. Being part of this improtant project could mean a lot to our school, which is small and far from big cities. Improving our school environment in relation to language teaching and learning is an important goal to us.
Every year an Australian teacher carries on lessons in English where 8th grade students have to communicate in English. Our students like this activity very much.
Starting from this year our 8th grade students will take the Ket test in order to have their competences in the English language certified.
We'd like to plan an activity that lets our students express themselves in the English language without feeling embarassed and using the brand new '3.0 classroom' and innovative ways of learning
Suggestions to fulfill our aim, software to use in our 3.0 classroom (tablets, flipped classroom, etc.), specific courses for teachers
