Blogging and writing in Italian as a second language: reporting an experience at the University of Genoa

Emanuela Cotroneo


This paper describes a teaching experience carried out in the Academic Year 2008/2009 in Italian language and culture courses for foreign students on mobility projects and held at the University of Genoa. Using a class blog as a tool for sharing information, the texts produced by the learners and the links and online resources are the main elements of this investigation. A retrospective analysis has revealed the critical points of the planning and has suggested a way of working not only based on sharing but also on the collaboration of the participants.
