Mitigazione, italiano LS e scrittura accademica

Un nuovo strumento per la ricerca e la didattica

Carlo Giordano    niversità Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Gesù, Italia; Universiteit Utrecht, Netherlands    



In order to be able to properly accommodate the increasing number of foreign students attending Italian universities, to make the Italian university system more attractive and finally to provide more accurate and refined tools, we would need to take actions whose final objective is to improve the quality of the reception and the education offer. The goal of the present study is to present a tool, a test to detect the use of mitigation strategies by university students of Italian as a FL/SL, that goes on this direction and that can be used in research and experiments in the domains of linguistics, teaching techniques and intercultural communication. A pilot study of this test is currently being carried out at the University of Utrecht, the University of Amsterdam and the University of Leiden. In what follow I will present both the reasons and the choices of the design and some preliminary results.
