Terceira Idade
Abstract in Portuguese
Este trabalho é resultante da prática adquirida durante o ensino de língua italiana a adultos, mais precisamente, minha experiência com alunos da terceira idade. Trata-se de um estudo feito a partir de variadas situações observadas em sala de aula com esse grupo de alunos. Durante as aulas, fui notando que os alunos mais velhos possuem características e necessidades peculiares, as quais, até então, jamais percebera em outros grupos compostos por jovens adultos ou adolescentes. A partir desta constatação, percebi que reorganizar, aperfeiçoar e redirecionar minha prática pedagógica tornava-se urgente caso quisesse, realmente, obter resultados satisfatórios e um bom relacionamento com esses alunos. Por esta razão iniciei leituras específicas na área de Gerontologia e, sucessivamente, em Lingüística Aplicada e Ensino de idiomas, para tentar atingir e satisfazer as necessidades que esse grupo apresentava. Uma apresentação da chamada terceira idade, suas motivações, características, previsões para as próximas décadas, bem como o perfil do grupo com o qual trabalhei, as atividades que surtiram resultados satisfatórios e tiveram boa aceitação entre esses alunos constituem os capítulos desta dissertação.

Abstract in English
This piece of work is the result of the acquired experience of teaching the Italian language to adults, more precisely, my experience teaching Italian to the elderly. This dissertation deals with the result from a study accomplished with these students and the several situations experienced by them in the classroom. During my lessons I could notice that these elderly students present particular traits and needs which I had never noted in other groups made up of teenagers and young adults. Having this evidence in mind, in case I really wanted to succeed in obtaining satisfactory results and a good relationship with my elderly students, I was in urgent need of reorganizing, perfecting and restructuring my pedagogical practice. For this reason, I started reading publications about Gerontology, Applied Linguistics and about the Practice of teaching and learning foreign languages. The chapters of this dissertation consist of a presentation of this elderly age group, their motivations, traits, previsions for the next decades, as well as a profile of the people with whom I have worked, and also the activities which resulted in positive responses and had a warm acceptance among these elderly students.
