Migrazione femminile e bisogni di apprendimento in italiano L2

Uno studio di caso presso le donne del ricongiungimento familiare

Edith Cognigni    Università di Macerata, Italia    



The paper discusses the main results of a case study on migrant women learning Italian as a second language and the teaching strategies employed thereof. The study focuses in particular on the linguistic and educational needs of female learners who move to Italy as a re- sult of family reunification. After providing a critical overview of the course structure and teach- ing procedures which are generally implemented in this type of language training, the paper proposes an analysis of adult migrants’ L2 learning needs from a gendered perspective. In light of some critical issues emerging from the case study, a task-based and self-narrative methodo- logical framework is proposed, to try and meet migrant women’s heterogeneous needs.
