Language and Methodology course for non-native teachers of Spanish

Our aim is to develop both theoretical and practical aspects of interactive and communicative teaching of language, while paying particular attention to the use of different materials and resources for various types of lessons. Participants take part in daily seminars, demonstrations and workshops, while also having the chance to explore the tropical island of Tenerife through different leisure activities and group excursions.

The key aspects of this course focus on the role grammar plays in the language classroom; communicative approaches and the gamification in a ELE classroom; teaching lexical collocation and a CLIL class; the use of cultural components in the ELE classroom (i.e. cinema and images) as well as real-time observations of our classes. Participants will then have the chance to discuss other challenges they face when teaching Spanish classes as they become informed on best practices used by native-speaking teachers.
