Our Methodology

The Other Way Spanish (TOW) is a program that teaches Spanish as a second/foreing language while the students internalize the intercultural competence, that is, it develops the four language abilities (speaking, writing, listening and reading) and integrates the second/foreing language culture through various resources and activities in the class. 

The teaching methodology is divided into two main points: linguistic approaches: “Comunicative Language Teaching, CLT” (S. Krashen 1998) and “Content and Language Integrated Learning, CLIL” (D. Marsh 1954) which seek to make the students learn by the context (learning-acquisition) while learning the language through their language abilities

The second part of our teaching is “Culture and Didactics” for which we use theories such as: “Non-parametric Didactics (didactica no parametral en español)” and “Communicative Competence” (D. Hymes 1966) in which the learning-teaching process is not only to develop the language competence but also to include and make the students understand the second/foreing language culture through history, indentity, traditions and customs, and pragmatics (polite/non-polite, idioms, etc) so the students will be able to talk and be part of the society in which they are living. 

Addionally, The content is based on your Spanish level and your needs in case you need to base your study on specific areas/subjects.
