Jornadas CIEE Alicante

Pedro Gras, director of Linguistic Services of CIEE Barcelona, attended Jornadas CIEE Alicante (, a two-day conference devoted to Spanish language and content learning. The event gathered specialists in linguistics, language learning and related fields who presented current trends in language and content integrated learning.

Pedro Gras’ contribution (Una propuesta para el tratamiento de la escritura académica en niveles intermedios y avanzados ‘Teaching academic writing at intermediate and advanced levels: a proposal’) dealt with one of the special needs of US students who study Spanish in a study abroad program. These students being able to interact not only in ordinary situations (talking to friends, shopping, going to restaurants, etc.), but also in an academic context (understanding lectures, participating in class discussions, writing papers and exams, and so on). In his presentation Prof. Gras introduced some of the pedagogical methods being used at CIEE Barcelona in order to integrate academic communication while developing general Spanish communicative skills.
