The notes discuss the topic of observation during language teaching, particularly in an Italian context. It appears Italian teachers are not as direct as others when it comes to giving feedback after observation. The text describe a course where a student tried to teach some Piedimontese - a niche Italian language - and a feedback session that followed. Rinvolucri suggests that feedback after observation, in Italy, can be too vague.
