Project Description

A project with Clelia Boscolo will focus on any aspect of the teaching and learning of Italian as a foreign or second language. It may look at the role of literature, at one or more specific skills or the use of music and songs as pedagogical tools. These are just examples of the sort of project that might be available in this research group. The precise project will be decided upon in consultation with the supervisor.
