As is usual at this time of year, the Cervantes International School has sent out information about the Fifth National Forum which this year has the slogan “Gamification and Specific Purposes”. The forum will take place on the 30th and 31st of January in the local heritage museum of Malaga.
At this meeting the speakers and the participants intend to reply to questions related to games and the teaching of Spanish. How do we play with our students? What tools do we use? Is there relevant material already published? Is there an age for games? Is it necessary to create material for games for all ages or do they exist for each age group?
As far as Spanish for Specific Purposes is concerned, the questions to be asked are: Do publishers have relevant material for this type of student? How can we integrate the cultural component into these specific courses? And the lexical component? What is the best way to train Spanish teachers for Specific Purposes?
A detailed programme, parallel activities and the registration form can be found on the web page for the event.
