La formazione degli alfabetizzatori di adulti stranieri e la tipologia di corsi in Italia, Francia e Spagna
Modelli a confronto
This paper presents the results of a survey on the typology of literacy courses for adult non-native speakers in Turin, Marseilles and Seville and the teaching methods used in them. The internationalisation of university curricula has highlighted the need to compare the training systems available for access to all forms of teaching, from primary to university education, as well as professional training. The survey was administered to the teachers involved in these courses, and the analysis shows that, although many teachers attended language education and refresher courses, few of them were taught the principles of the acquisition of reading and writing. In the light of the data obtained, these literacy courses for adult non-native speakers have the same characteristics as any other course, but the role of volunteers is very relevant. In order to compare teaching programs in EU countries, an investigation of the university programs for language teaching and literacy is necessary.
