The course is offered from the 5th semester onwards, focusing mainly on 7th semester students, as successful student response to it requires successful completion of courses such as research methodology and pedagogical and school practices.Through this course, students first come to terms with the use of curricula for teaching Italian and, on the basis of it, attempt to design a language course using elements of the Italian culture and then present it to their classmates. In other words they have to act as active teachers of the Italian language to the extent this is possible.
