The Teaching of Modern Languages to Migrant Workers. (Italy), 1973.
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Documentation Center for Education in Europe.
Financed by the Council of Europe, a course in the German language was conducted for the benefit of Italian workers destined to work in the Federal Republic of Germany. Designed to contribute to the alien workers' integration into Germany's social structure, the course emphasized comprehension and speaking. Candidates were personally interviewed by an ICEM (Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration) representative. Of the 30 persons attending classes, 21 qualified for enrollment. Classes commenced in Naples (Italy) on 9 October 1973 and terminated on 25 January 1974. Two-hour evening sessions were held 3 times a week. The German teaching film, "Viel Gluck in Deutschland", produced for foreign workers was used as a basis for the curriculum of study. Study motivation was particularly high as most of the participants were genuinely interested in occupying a position in Germany. Eleven students concluded the course with satisfactory grades. (NQ)
