It is hard to buy a closed-box online course. Even when you can see some examples of material, we are never sure if it will be really effective or suitable for us. That’s why today and in the next article we tell you a typical didactic unit of Italyamo: the best Italyamo’s lesson plan!
Italyamo’s lesson plan – 1
As you can read in one of our previous article, we use the flipped classroom: ‘funny and easy videos to watch (and watch again how many times you need to grasp and memorize the focus-rule) on your own, without stress, without anyone hurrying you to understand’. After these videos, we propose you to do graduated activities from the easiest to the most difficult, trying to work on all the aspects covered in the video and adding something more. To get to a meeting, i.e. an online lesson or in individual or small group presence, to activate what has been learned.

How does our lesson plan work? Let’s take for example our teaching unit “Breakfast” which you can find in our A1-3 level package. The video provides rich and natural visual and verbal input with inserts of authentic Italian material. After the presentation of the situation, some linguistic mechanisms are highlighted and explained. In this case the words related to the theme breakfast (food and drink) and the verb pleasure. Graduated activities on vocabulary and grammar (true or false, multiple choice, short answers, memory, matching, etc.) are followed by cultural enrichment with videos and other materials.
