checkedPlaying with the artistic heritage in the Spanish lessons

The use of artistic heritage as a teaching-learning tool in the ELE class can be the gateway to bring students the culture of Hispanic countries. In the workshop we propose strategies, methodologies and activities to integrate artistic and historical knowledge in an entertaining way with the curricular contents. Through a simulacrum of session / class for level A2-B1 we will treat a grammatical content, integrated with a cultural and historical-artistic content through a playful methodology.
