Summer Course in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language

Course description

 

The summer 2021 course is:

Creating grammar materials for teaching Spanish.

  • On-line synchronous and asynchronous, from 06/11/2021 to 06/25/2021
  • Language of instruction: Spanish. A minimum knowledge of Spanish B2 is recommended.

Introduction to the course

The Spanish language is arousing more interest in the world every day and is gaining enormous international projection. In fact, it has become the second most studied language.

According to the data provided by the MEC, Spanish is the ​most studied language in all educational stages in the United States. It ranks second in terms of the number of students in France, Sweden, Brazil, and much of the United Kingdom. In Germany, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, New Zealand, Portugal, and Italy it is the third language. In addition, Spanish has the status of Foreign Language 1 (FL1) mainly in Anglo-Saxon countries, where students generally study one or no foreign language; and its position as Foreign Language 2 (FL2) is mostly in France, Sweden, and Brazil.

In short, the learning of Spanish as a foreign language is very relevant in the USA; it is experiencing a spectacular increase in old Europe; it is growing in former Eastern Europe, and its teaching is beginning to be introduced in Asia, Africa, and Oceania.  

For all these reasons, the ​teaching of Spanish as a second language is increasingly seen as a career opportunity with a great future​. The ​Instituto Cervantes​ , Official Language Schools, public and private schools abroad, assistantships and scholarships at foreign universities, private language teaching centres, NGOs… are some of the many professional options for Spanish teachers. 

This course is aimed at people interested in developing teaching materials and resources on outstanding topics in Spanish grammar. The course provides the necessary knowledge to carry out an analysis of teaching materials on grammar and to deepen the criteria to create and evaluate these materials. All this will be put into practice with the elaboration of a didactic unit.

It is aimed at developing the key competences of the teaching staff:

  • Organizing learning situations
  • Assessing student learning and performance
  • Involving students in the control of their own learning

This course is part of the Deusto Summer School 2021.

Goals

  • Establish criteria for assessing the suitability of teaching materials and resources.
  • Create and adapt teaching materials and resources on Spanish grammar.
  • Designing a teaching unit.

Contents

  • Criteria for the analysis and creation of teaching materials and resources.
  • Analysis and creation of teaching materials and resources on Spanish grammar.
  • How to design a teaching unit.

Teachers

  • Penélope Casado López (Teacher trainer)
  • Susana Pueyo Herboso (Teacher trainer)

Accreditation

Students who have participated in this course will receive a certificate of achievement issued by the Cervantes Institute and the University of Deusto, which will be sent by this university to the interested party. To do so, students must actively participate in communication activities and pass the course evaluation tasks with the qualification of “Pass”.

The University of Deusto will issue a certificate for 1 ECTS credit.
