The course "Specialist in educational innovation in the area of foreign languages: English" is a training program for those students who have completed the Specialist course and who wish to broaden their knowledge on didactics and innovation in foreign language teaching (in this case, English) to Spanish-speaking students. It is a theoretical-practical program where the students can learn different methodological approaches within what is known as CLIL, along with a large emphasis on classroom practice which will help them to consolidate their knowledge and implement it in the classroom with real students and lecturers.


The course Specialist in Educational Innovation in the Area of Foreign Languages: English is given in conjunction with ECM (Catholic Schools of Madrid).

This course was created as a specialism of the course "Methodology and Assessment of English Teaching and Learning in the Classroom". In this way, conversation assistants carry out a specialization course with the university, showing them how to carry out class planning, classroom management, the different methods of teaching English grammar and Cambridge exam preparation.
