Un modelo de enfoque plurilingüe para la enseñanza de lenguas en la escuela


  • Ernesto Martín Peris


The learning goals in the area of foreign language teaching in
today’s world need to be defined anew, one of their main features being
the giving up the construct of the native speaker as the paradigm of
reference. It needs to be replaced by a set of the individual’s competences
in different languages,that are variable and will have to be exercised in
differentiated contexts and situations. The plurilingual approaches might
be an appropriate response to these demands; taking as a starting point
the concept of plurilingual competence, and building up on Cummins’
hypothesis of linguistic interdependence, a pedagogical model is put
forward, that is being worked on for its later implementation in some different contexts of the language teaching in Spain. The model, which
encompasses the whole of the languages repertoire of each individual
learner, and aims at developing altogether the plurilingual competence
and the intercultural awareness, will be tried out in a number of schools
with different characteristics as to their educational level and sociopolitical
context, and will be validated following the formative research
