The monitored internship is good for those who are beginners and wish to take up the profession.

It is available as follows:
  • 60 hours of observation during 3 weeks
  • 100 hours of observation during 5 weeks
The school belongs to Asils and all the hours of the internship are certified and valid to obtain the certifications in teaching the Italian language to foreigners.
Interns assist and analyze each stage of the lesson, with the right combination of theory and practice.
The observation consists of:
  • Testing and subdivision of students into classrooms
  • Choice of material for groups (A1-C2)
  • Preparation of lessons with the school teachers
  • Analysis of different approaches and techniques
  • Time and space management
In the second part of the internship, the interns test themselves in the classroom. The lessons will be prepared together with the tutor who will help interns in the choice of materials, in the management of time and space, and in the preparation of activities.
At the end of each lesson, there will be a moment of dialog to clarify doubts and challenges.

The school has actually 2 partnerships and hosts as interns the students of the University of Genova and the Università Ca'Foscari, specializing in the field of the teaching of the Italian as second language.

University students and new graduates can enrich their experience with a 100-hour monitored teaching path, subject to approval by the school's teaching direction and by activating the internship through the Internship Office of these or other universities. These hours are recognized for all teaching certificates of Italian to foreigners (DITALS, DILS-PG, CEDILS).
