Cognitive Linguistics offers a theoretical framework of interest for the teaching of languages. Within this framework, language is understood as a constructor of meaning based on the sensory and motor experience of all speakers, and this point of view offers great potential in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
In this course, the field of Cognitive Linguistics and its contributions to teaching in formal contexts will be explored through the grammar of the space, the linguistic system that inhabits the mind, and how our embodied language can be understood and learned.
Price:220€. This includes the material provided during the course and the issuance of the certificate.

Different types of practical activities are proposed, which involve reflection and problem solving through group discussion and the sharing of professional experiences. The activities are aimed at developing skills for teaching grammar and vocabulary from a cognitive perspective. The discussion of methodological approaches to cognitive teaching will be favored and applied, in a practical way, through provided and generated examples.
