Aprendizaje de contenidos a través del Español como Segunda Lengua en la Educación Superior: un puente entre la lengua y el conocimiento
Keywords:CONTENT AND LANGUAGE INTEGRATED LEARNING, ACADEMIC SPANISH, SPANISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE IN HIGHER EDUCATION, SPECIALIZED LANGUAGES, STUDENT MOBILITY, UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONALIZATION
In Spanish universities there are increasingly more students who attend content courses taught in Spanish without this being their first language and who therefore simultaneously learn the language in which the course is taught as much as the content of the course, without any specific language instruction. In this article, we address this problematic situation of Spanish as a Second Language in Higher Education through the lens of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL). First, we review the theoretical foundations of CLIL teaching methods and Academic Spanish teaching and learning, offering a state of the matter. Second, we show the work being done in this area by the Research Group in Acquisition and Instruction of Second and Foreign Languages at the University of Alicante (ACQUA). The conclusions constitute the third and final part, in which we summarize the results of the work done and propose future directions of research
