An Italian Case: Students with a Foreign Background in IVET and the Access to Italian as Second Language

Abstract

The article is based on a study carried out by the administration of nearly 3600 questionnaires on a sample equally distributed among Italian students and pupils with foreign origins in IVET in six Italian regions. The text examines the survey data related to the ownership and use of the Italian language and of different dialects for the students of foreign origins. Starting from the research evidence, some proposals for the strengthening of the Italian language for young people with foreign origins are suggested. A bibliography reference, per author, and in relation to the issues of intercultural education, Italian second language, active citizenship, integration and inclusion, is annexed.
