             It is agreed as follows

1.            The Network, with the assistance and advisory services of the Department of Italian of The Ohio State University (USA), organizes each scholastic year a program of study, training and intercultural experience in secondary schools of the Lombard provinces.

3.            The program provides at least 25 hours per week of training in the “Network” schools, of which 12 hours are as English language assistants, always in the presence of the Italian teacher of English, and 13 hours of study and self-training, project-related activities, conversations with the students, excursions, office hours and meetings with an assigned tutor
