Regarding education and teacher training, the School works in close cooperation with two postgraduates courses in Italian Language Acquisition. The School also promotes and hosts international seminars for teachers of Italian on the most up-to-date methodologies in language teaching.
The School signs international agreements with universities of different countries of the world to promote and spread its activities. Many agreements on teaching and scientific cooperation have already been signed and many others are being initialised.
