IEREST in Italian language courses

Starting from February 2015, Luisa Bavieri and Lucia Livatino have been using some activities of the IEREST ‘while-abroad’ module in their L2 Italian courses for Erasmus and international students, at the Language University Centre (University of Bologna). The IEREST activities allow students to practice a range of discourse genres (i.e., diary entries, academic presentations) in Italian, while addressing a series of intercultural matters (the affective dimension of the intercultural dialogue, academic cultures, etc.).
