‘Migrare’ la classe: i musei come spazi innovativi di apprendimento linguistico e interculturale

Abstract

With their rich multimodal and multisensory inputs, museums offer learners with a migrant background an invaluable opportunity to develop their linguistic competence and positive attitudes towards learning a L2. The aim of this article is to describe the impact on a group of migrants of an Italian L2 learning workshop held in an art museum in Venice. Qualitative data was collected through students’ focus group discussion, the museum educator’s diary and the teacher’s observation sheet. The results show that participating in such an experience can have a positive impact on students’ linguistic, affective, and intercultural spheres.
