La certificazione glottodidattica DILS-PG
Saperi testati e profilo degli iscritti all’esame di II livello
This paper will describe the knowledge and competencies tested in the Certificate in “Italian Language Teaching” DILS-PG (level 2) examination, produced by the University for Foreigners of Perugia. It aims to show how this knowledge and these competencies are common to second language teachers and refer to international teacher profiles, like those outlined in the European Profiling Grid (EPG), a tool for mapping and assessing language teacher competencies internationally. At the same time the paper will present the preliminary results of a wider research based on the systematic collection and analysis of data arising from the administering of Certificate DILS-PG (level 2). It will highlight how the profile of candidates has changed after the introduction of teaching qualification (A23) to teach Italian as a second language in public schools and the recognition of the Certificate DILS-PG (level 2) by the Ministry of Education as a specific qualification to teach Italian as a second language.
