Motivation in
Learning Italian
Italian Cultural Institute of
686 Park Avenue
A lecture by professor Palo Balbo-
ni. The topic pertains to the field of
neurolinguistics, but it will be dealt
with from the teacher’s perspective.
Teachers have to help students to
acquire Italian, i.e., to store words,
grammar, speech acts, cultural
models into their brains and minds
– and knowing how the brain and
the mind work in language learn-
ing becomes of paramount impor-
tance in order to let teachers work
properly so that learning will take
place. The second part of the talk
is based on the fact that the hard-
ware and the software of language
acquisition, i.e. the brain and the
mind, need power in order to work.
Introduced by Anthony J. Tamburri
Dean of the John D. Calandra Italian
American Institute of Queens Col-
lege, CUNY and Professor of Italian
& Italian/American Studies.
