Interdisciplinary Learning CoursesReading Club

Reading is an intense dialogue between the reader and the book, which is enhanced when shared with others.

In our Nebrija Reading Club, during 15 sessions, the reader meets once a week with a group of other readers -who have previously read a text- and a professor, and they work together on different types of texts. Readers sit together to analyze and debate the texts. Unique texts, of the highest quality, of different genres, current topics and from different authors and historical contexts are chosen, so that students find great pleasure in reading and acquire a habit that will accompany them during many moments of their lives.

In this ILC, reading comprehension, the ability for analysis, debate, the ability to defend ideas, accept those of others, listening and respecting speaking turns are promoted, while developing the reader's critical thinking. Reading is a deep dialogue between a reader and a book, and this course will develop the analytical capacity that so strengthens the critical spirit of the student and professional of the 21st century.
