Language Point, as an international language training Institution, accredited by MIUR since 2004, offers a wide range of options for the professional development of teachers, regardless of their specific level of experience or education. We promote and organize seminars and training courses tailored to the needs expressed by the school as well as cultural events for the updating of teachers. Within the framework of the European dimension of teaching foreign languages, “teacher training” is intended for those who want to acquire specific training in teaching languages and other subjects (science, art, geography, history, mathematics, technology, etc.) in a foreign language (CLIL) or simply expand their professional knowledge.
