This project aims to collaboratively improve module 2 of the subject 'School Language Project and Plurilingualism', taught in English in the third year of the Degree in Primary Education.
Despite the growing social demand of integrated content and foreign language learning spaces (CLIL), students systematically reject content that is given in English. This rejection has to do with the brevity of module 2 (5 sessions) and with the fact that not all students are oriented to choose the specilization in foreign languages, all of which repercutes in a low level of participation and in poor results achieved.
To break this resistance and give truly meaningful content for all, this research-action project aims at working with students, based on their interests and needs. The proposal articulates several phases of collecting, analyzing and discussing data on student perceptions, with the collaborative production of teaching-learning resources to promote a change in their perception towards languages in education. The proposal puts the students at the center of their training process, in order to achieve a greater impact on learning.
