    Each activity in this booklet has been adapted from a series of lessons delivered in Prato by the Monash University lecturers. The activities have been developed to reflect the two LOTE VELS dimensions of Communicating in the LOTE and InterCultural Knowledge and Language Awareness. They are varied in their content and structure, so as to engage students and cater for different learning styles. These activities are easily adaptable to suit different levels.

    students in the classroom. Don‘t turn the sheet over – aspettate a scoprire

ACTIVITY 2 GETTING TO KNOW YOU

    Students work in pairs and are given ten minutes to speak about themselves to each other, the partner summarises the information. They then report back to the rest of the group the information that they have discovered about their partner. (Depending on the level the teacher provides guidance and scaffolding to support the students)

Example

Vi presento Sandra

    Vive da sola

    Ama lárte

    Le piace il cinema, andare in bici, il nuoto

    E`abbastanza attiva

    Ama viaggiare

    Ha due sorelle piu`grandi, si chiamano Annamaria e Patrizia

    Viene da una famiglia unita

    I genitori vengono dalla Calabria

    E`vissuta a Verona per un anno

    Apprezza conoscere altre culture

ACTIVITY 3 GETTING TO KNOW YOU

    The students are requested to write down, in Italian, a question that they would like to ask the teacher. This can also be done in the polite form.

eg: Quanti anni hai?

     Cosa fai/fa nel tuo/suo tempo libero?

    The teacher collects the questions and puts them in a container. Three students are chosen to come out the front. The other students are then directed to pick out one of the questions and ask it of the three selected students who then answer the question as though they were the teacher. (These students are encouraged to be as imaginative and as entertaining as possible). The teacher later reveals the real answers to the questions.

ACTIVITY 4 GETTING TO KNOW YOU

    The teacher brings to class a suitcase/bag with items, brochures and articles that represents him/herself. The class describes and discusses each item in Italian. Each item reveals information about the person. Students can bring to class a bag of objects that represent themselves.

ACTIVITY 5 GETTING TO KNOW YOU

    Select a dialogue between two people, for example a telephone conversation. The dialogue is cut into sentences and distributed randomly to groups of students. Students must then work out the order and physically place themselves in the correct sequence. The dialogue is then read out to check if correct. If not, the students try again.

ACTIVITY 6 “SPEED DATING”

    Objective is to find out information about a new person joining their group then report back to the class

    Begin by modelling the activity with with a select group of four students. One student is delegated to be the "visitor"". The visitor joins the group and students ask as many questions as possible of this new person to establish as much information as possible.

ACTIVITY 7 “SEI TU?”

    The teacher gives each student a written personal description, telling the students that it is a description of themselves. Students read the description aloud and identify statements that are true or not true.

    This can be adapted to all levels.

Example

    Amo la musica e la letteratura. Ho studiato a Firenze dove ho abitato per anni vicino alla casa di Dante. Suono il violino e insegno la letteratura italiana in una scuola di Sydney.

Example for Primary level

    Amo la musica si`e`vero

    Ho studiato a Firenze no, non e`vero.
