25th September 2016 - The Italian Bookshop - 10.00-12.00

Gabriella Debetto
con la partecipazione di Luca Cupani



"Tutta colpa dell'italiano" è una serie in quattro puntate che Loescher Editore dedica agli anglofoni che studiano l'italiano. Luca, il protagonista, è un italiano che vive a Londra da tre anni e soffre di una sindrome di estraniamento dalla sua lingua materna. Per questo va dall'analista e comincia a raccontare...

Partendo dalla visione di un video di questa serie, Gabriella Debetto condurrà una riflessione sulle regole, talvolta complesse, della lingua italiana e illustrerà quali sono gli strumenti possibili per acquisirle. L'autrice si soffermerà su alcuni strumenti didattici pensati appositamente per il pubblico anglofono e su una grammatica utile per acquisire consapevolezza delle regole attraverso un processo graduale di conoscenza delle strutture e dei meccanismi di funzionamento della lingua.

I partecipanti riceveranno in omaggio un easy-reader e un poster fotografico con la cartina dell'Italia.

Luca, the protagonist, is Italian and has lived in London for three years, during which time he has felt increasingly estranged from his native language. So he visits a therapist and starts to tell his story...

After viewing a video from the series, Gabriella Debetto will reflect on the rules and complexities of the Italian language and will illustrate some of the possible ways to master them. The author will focus on a number of didactic tools specifically intended for English-speakers and will take a closer look at a useful book on Italian grammar that gradually develops understanding of the structures and functions of the language.

Each participant will receive a free easy-reader and a photographic poster of the map of Italy.
