Language school and training
Specialized in Italian for foreigners
Ataya School has been working in the Bergamo area since 1991 and offers courses to male and female students from all over the world for 12 months each year. Each year it provides courses for more than 1,000 students.
From a small organization with which only volunteer teachers collaborated, today the school has more than 10 salaried teachers qualified in teaching Italian L2 and several foreign languages and more than 80 volunteers, highly experienced and always in training.
Ataya School adopts an inclusive and cooperative teaching method, with a focus to cross-cultural aspects. The purpose is to offer affordable quality courses for all and, with the support of volunteers, offer low-cost courses for unemployed citizens.
In order to meet the needs of citizenship, for many years the School has been working with public (municipalities, schools and libraries) and private (companies, associations, oratories) entities in Bergamo and its province through participation in various projects.
Thanks to many years of experience, today Ataya School is also a training institution specializing in the teaching of Italian L2 and the management of multilingual and multicultural classrooms.
Since 2021, the School has been part of the Rete Scuole Amiche di ANILS (National Association of Teachers of Foreign Languages).

THE LASLLIAM PROJECT
𝙇𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙎𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙇𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙪𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙇𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙪𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙘 𝙄𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝘼𝙙𝙪𝙡𝙩 𝙈𝙞𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙨 (LASLLIAM) is a project sponsored by the Education Department of the Council of Europe. Since 2018, it aimed to develop a 𝘙𝘦𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘎𝘶𝘪𝘥𝘦 for literacy and second language learning by non-literate and low-literate adult migrants.
Ataya School and other Italian institutions worked together to create teaching materials: five scenarios that fit into the public, private, educational, and workplace domains and all have a focus on teaching digital skills, which are essential to teach for adult literacy teachers.
