Only-Digital Partipant

The Semana del Español (Spanish Week) offers a completely digital mode for those ELE professionals, teachers and non-teachers, who wish to attend the activity but are unable to do so in person. Thanks to the hybrid sessions that will take place during the days of celebration in Madrid or the number of activities that will be held beforehand on the digital platform, all participants will be able to train and have an unique contact with Spanish in Spain.

09:00 - 09:15 h | FEDELE Welcome

 

WILL BE STREAMED LIVE ON THE PLATFORM FOR DIGITAL ATTENDEES.

09:15 - 10:45 h | Room A - Intercultural mediators in the Spanish language classroom: activities to develop this competence - Aarón Pérez

As reflected in the latest update of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the role of the teacher as a mediator in the classroom is becoming increasingly important. Moreover, in our ELE classrooms, there are many cultures that intermingle to learn Spanish, so the role of the teacher as intercultural mediator is even more accentuated. Therefore, in this session we will talk about the importance of the teacher as an intercultural mediator in the classroom.

Speaker: Aarón Pérez

Session hosted by Editorial Edinumen

09:15 - 10:45 h | Room B - Student anxiety about error - Álvaro Sesmilo

The traditional approach to language teaching, which focused the progression of learning on the correction of errors, is being left behind, giving way to new ways of dealing with errors in the classroom. In this session, we will discuss the emotions that students can develop when faced with mistakes, taking into account their previous beliefs about mistakes, how to modify them and how to make them adaptive to the learning process in order to improve the student’ self-esteem. In addition, we will talk about the development of the student’s personality in second languages.

IT WILL BE STREAMED LIVE ON THE PLATFORM FOR DIGITAL ATTENDEES.

15:45 - 11:00 h | Coffee Break

11:00 - 12:30 h | Room A - The Importance of Emotional Bonding in Spanish Learning - Carmen Aguirre and Clara de la Flor

Everyday metaphors, or cognitive metaphors (as Lakoff and Johnson would point out), are essential in communication in order to understand the true way in which speakers of the same language conceive the world. Through this training, we will learn first-hand how Spanish teachers can offer their students the glasses through which Spanish speakers learn reality, through the use of these metaphors in communication.

Season hosted by Habla con EÑE

11:00 - 12:30 h | Sala B - Practical Resources to Promote Students' Attention with Consistency and Pace - Estefanía Velasco

As teachers we face many challenges in the classroom. One of them is to keep the attention of our students, a cognitive process that is a determining factor in the learning and performance of our students. Therefore, in this workshop we are going to look at some useful ideas to capture the attention of learners and get them motivated and involved in Spanish classes. All this through meaningful activities and proposals that connect with their interests, emotions and realities.

PLATINO EDUCA is a teaching platform with a catalogue of more than 350 Spanish and Latin American audiovisual works, specially selected for their pedagogical and cultural value. All the films are in the original Spanish language, from each country where the film was produced, so that the different nuances of the Spanish language can be appreciated. All films can be viewed with subtitles in Spanish and English, and have support material, such as teaching guides, Platino Educa-Pisa resources, online courses and ELE GUIDES: Guides specifically designed for learning Spanish as a foreign language through the viewing of films, covering the different levels of the language according to the CEFR.
