Before you explore this site....


I put some of my most useful lesson plans together in a web site, in case that Italian teachers around the world are looking for ideas for their classes.  Some activities are based on exercises from textbooks, some others are created to enlarge a topic that's been taught in class.  Although most of the activities are for Italian classes, some might be applied to other foreign languages.  Also, I will be posting news and more activities in the section “My posts”.  I will be happy to include helpful suggestions coming from foreign language teachers.  If you’d like to share a useful activity, contact me and I will gladly publish it.


Cervelli in fuga

After a teaching unit that focussed on the migration flows in the XIX century and immediately after WW2, I'd like to discuss about the "cervelli in fuga" (brain drain).  In fact, the number of young educated Italians who leave the country to accept rewarding jobs in other countries has incredibly raised in the past two decades.  Here are some activities to do with AP students.
