The program consists of two weekly one-hour-and-fifteen minutes meetings for the first part of the semester. Meetings and additional sessions will be needed in the second part of the semester with the beginning of the rehearsals (typically, each session will last about two hours). From that point on, the presence of the assistant will not be absolutely necessary during the class time. However, periodic communication is necessary with the teacher. The teacher and the assistant will keep each other informed about the rehearsals and any issues related to the students’ problems with interpretation and pronunciation. This way, the teacher and the assistant will resume the rehearsals from where they have interrupted them during the previous sessions and classes; when possible, they will also divide the students into groups in order to rehearse different scenes simultaneously.
