At the inservice seminar you will receive an in-depth introduction to the Italian course in LCA. Also included will be some strategies for approaching the course. Active teaching methodologies are an underlying principle of the programme and are fundamental to its success. 2. Obtain the module descriptor for Modern Languages. You can view it (or download it) from the website but ask your coordinator first as there is likely to be a copy in the school. 3. Talk to you coordinator about booking a place on the next in service training day for new teachers. 4. Ask your students to have a notebook and a small folder for class 5. Begin by teaching the basic greetings. Ask students to write down the new words into their notebooks and keep these in the folder along with any other handouts or worksheets you make out. 6. Get students to ask each other basic questions and repeat these at the start of each lesson Buongiorno Buongiorno Come ti chiami? Mi chiamo? Come sta? Sto bene.Grazie. 7. Introduce days of the week. Ask the students to write them down. Call them out. Ask each other: ‘Cosa vuol dire ‘Monday?’ Vuol dire __________________ 8. Begin with the numbers 1-10 then 11-20. get students to record the list in their notebooks. Ask each other ‘cosa vuol dire tre?’ etc. Ask the students to write the numbers on the board. 9. Teach the basic colours. Ask students to do a small poster illustrating the colours using colouring pencils. Put this into their folders. 10. Have themed rounds of questions. Ask Days of the Week first, then colours, perhaps numbers and finally clothes for example 11. Get the students to ask each other the vocabulary keeping their notebooks open in the first instance and later ask them to try and recall the vocabulary from memory. 12. Food is another important topic. You may begin with some basic food items and get students to draw simple images of the food on to a sheet that is kept in their folder.
