In addition to the implementation of the SD, two focus groups were conducted with students before and after the development of the project to document their point of view on the use of video-reviews as a didactic resource to generate literary learning. The students' discourses evidenced the development of inferential and critical interpretation skills of the readings, showing a reflective position on what was read and externalizing a competent handling of the digital vernacular discourse of the video review.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Lenin Paladines Paredes Phraseological equivalence in ELE: the case of idiomatic verbal locutions in Spanish and Russian 2023-02-09T14:56:42+01:00 Pablo Ramírez Rodríguez <p>In the framework of the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language (SFL), there is still a relative lack of an integrative methodology that not only mentions the importance of knowing the phraseological units in the classroom, but that also considers their idiomatic meaning for a better understanding by the students. Likewise, the aim of this paper focuses on the importance of integrative didactic materials within the framework of phraseology in general and idiomatic verbal locutions, from initial levels, to improve the phraseodidactic process in the SFL classroom. To carry out the study, a total of 80 Russian learners from different courses and levels volunteered to complete a questionnaire consisting of idiomatic verbal locutions. Finally, it is concluded that the role of these language combinations in the teaching-learning of SFL is beneficial.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pablo Ramírez Rodríguez CLIL in Pre-Primary Education: The Views of In-Service and Pre-Service Teachers 2023-03-02T15:33:26+01:00 Marta Segura <p>Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has rapidly gained ground in schools within the latest decades. Consequently, interest in analysing stakeholders’ perceptions and needs has increased. This article has a twofold aim: (1) to analyse pre-primary teachers’ CLIL knowledge, (2) to identify the expected benefits, challenges, and perceived needs that CLIL implementation in pre-primary may entail for themselves, and for their students. To do so, 129 pre-primary teachers (<em>N=</em>76 in-service, <em>N=</em>53 pre-service) responded an online survey. Answers were coded with Atlas.ti, visualisations were created with R. Results showed that most in-service teachers know what CLIL is, while pre-service teachers are rather unfamiliar with it. Teachers have positive expectations regarding the potential CLIL benefits for students and teachers. However, most do not feel ready to implement it in pre-primary, because of the lack of teacher training programmes (on methodology and FL), and the scarcity of resources (e.g., guidelines, materials, stakeholders’ support).</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Marta Segura "Petiscando libros": a reading promotion project for the literary learning of trainee teachers 2023-06-09T18:33:23+02:00 Rocío García-Pedreira <p>The professional training of Early Childhood Education teachers in the field of literary education involves the internalisation of reading habits. Thus, within the framework of the subject Children's Literature and Dramatisation (University of Santiago de Compostela), a project for the promotion of reading was carried out with 91 trainee teachers during the 2021-2022 academic year. It consisted of programming a reading club with selections of works linked to the theoretical content and chosen on the basis of specific criteria such as aesthetic and literary quality, which was complemented with the creation of a blog of literary recommendations and educational proposals created by and for teachers called "Petiscando libros". The evaluation questionnaires confirm the improvement in the pupils' relationship with reading based on the work carried out and a very positive perception of the contribution of the experience to their training as teachers.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Rocío García-Pedreira Book Review.
