Movie vision at Scuola Media Gramsci
Welcome to our “Language in action” section. The foreign teachers of Scuola Media Gramsci are pleased to introduce the main activities of the school year 2015/2016.
It’s not just a list but the proposal of an idea” more we are exposed to the language more we learn”.
For this reason, our students will experience a real contact with the foreign languages as often as they can and our target will be to create the opportunity to do this in an interesting and funny way.
Movie vision, theatre plays, interactive platform with virtual classes, mother tongue courses for international certifications, summer holidays in Great Britain are only the top of the iceberg of our activities in L2 (English, French, Spanish).
So follow us and be updated…
At the end of October, we are showing our first film of the list chosen for our Movie Vision activity.
