Cultura de aprendizaje: factor relevante en la enseñanza por tareas del español

Alejandra Vela Hidalgo, Yudi Marlen Buitrago Rico

Abstract

In this study, we explore the key factors of Task Based Language Teaching in Spanish as L2 classes in immersion contexts, to encourage the use of the target language outside the classroom. In order to do this, we developed two case studies, with two groups of different proficiency levels (A1-A2 and B2). The results show that it is true that the use of Task Based Teaching outside the classroom setting helps students to use the target language in real contexts. However, this is only true when students are acquainted with the methodology and/or willing to learn and accept it. In some cases, where the learning culture of the students was different, we did find difficulties. We conclude that, despite the students’ learning cultures, Task Based Language Teaching is indeed a useful and successful classroom tool to foster the use of the target language outside the classroom and in real contexts.
