The group of partners was able to start making up for lost time! With great enthusiasm we found ourselves in Milan for the first Training Course.
We worked for five days alternating theoretical lessons with active non-traditional learning practices. After a brief excursus on the foundations of the Montessori method, we reflected on innovative teaching in general and in particular on how some active and participatory dynamics are the key to success common to many innovative approaches for the study of foreign languages.
We practiced, teachers and students, having fun and overcoming the fear of making mistakes by trying activities and role-playing games using languages as a bridge between different cultures and backgrounds. The central figure remains that of the Bricouleur teacher, who is able to draw on the common heritage of innovative strategies and approaches to find each time the most suitable activity for the group of students.
