The project ‘Our School in Europe and in the World 2 ’ originates from the necessity of internationalizing our boarding school starting from the linguistic preparation of its staff. Our short-term objectives are:
1. Improving the general knowledge of English for the Principal and for the administrative and auxiliary staff, in order to give better welcome and hospitality to the numerous foreign students of the boarding school, to keep contacts with their families and their schools, to limit the extent of scholastic failure for these students.
2. Improving teachers’ knowledge of the English language in order to:
give better support to foreign students and secure their educational success
start a common learning path that will allow us to increase the number of CLIL courses in the three levels of the boarding school (primary, middle and secondary)
allow a large number of teachers to take part in cultural exchanges / partnership projects KA2
3. Improving the didactics of English as a foreign language with particular reference to special educational needs
4. Giving further training to teachers who are already teaching CLIL courses
