MMA is a refresher course for language teachers with young adults and adults (14+) on the application of the Montessori pedagogy to teach foreign languages, recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education, MIUR .

MMA course is addressed to:

  • Language teachers with young adults and adults (14+)
  • Teacher trainers
  • Students of foreign languages
  • University students and graduated
  • The staff in the field of formal, non-formal and informal education (teaching and non-teaching): principals and vice-principals, management, middle management, heads of departments, coordinators, student guidance counselors and center for adult education and training for foreign languages.

Our methodology MMA the Montessori Method to teach foreign languages to young adults and adults, can be defined as an activity-based approach, aimed at the development of each student’s criticism towards foreign language studies and how to succeed. To reach this goal, most activities are self-corrective, to encourage the autonomous learning. The full application of these principles and, consequently, of the MMA methodology, allows a natural language learning among students 14+, by eliminating, or at least alleviating, the major causes of stress and inhibition (part of the training).

As sub-objectives participants:

  • acquire a common teaching/training method, to facilitate mobility and transnational exchanges
  • improve their professionalism, increasing their career opportunities on international level
  • get effective tools for raising the motivation of adults and young adults, for learning foreign languages, thanks to this accessible, adaptable and flexible method.
