The ELE teacher training course of the Spanish Language School of the University of Salamanca in Strasbourg aims to provide teachers with all the necessary tools to implement ELE teaching based on an intercultural context.
There is now a consensus in language teaching about the need to produce speakers who can communicate effectively and appropriately in pluricultural and plurilingual contexts, i.e. who can act as social agents, as reflected in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
ELE USAL Strasbourg has taken up the challenge of organising a course that takes these aspects into account and offers a course in which each module is presented from the perspective of intercultural language learning.
This edition will include some new features, both in terms of format and content. The course will last 50 hours and will run three days a week for 8 weeks, with two hours per class.
The course consists of 4 blocks in which the theoretical and methodological foundations of foreign language teaching are presented and the application of these with each of the skills necessary for the language learner to achieve the communicative competence needed to function in Spanish as a foreign language. In this way, it presents the instruments that a teacher needs to focus on the preparation and implementation of an ELE course.

We have a platform where you will be registered. The courses are live and interaction between students is encouraged so that we can learn through the experiences of everyone involved in the course. This is important because, as it is an online course, students can come from anywhere in the world, which leads to different visions and ways of working depending on the culture of each person and where they are. Thus, during the course, interculturality is developed and we learn from each of the visions that are shared during the training. The courses take place at slightly different times each day so that you can participate as much as possible. In addition, they are recorded and uploaded to the course platform, along with the presentations and materials used, so that you can all keep up to date with the content and not lose momentum if you have to miss them. For each module you will be asked to complete an assignment, a reflection and participate in the forum. In this way, you will be able to integrate the content and put it into practice in your daily work as a teacher.
