I love languages and I can speak Catalan, Spanish, English, German, French and some Italian.
I'm interested in the teaching and learning of languages in general, and more specifically in methodologies such as CLIL (Content and language integrated learning). In 2005/2006 I enjoyed a paid leave by the Department of Education to carry out some research on how to teach English and Social Sciences in an integrated way in primary.
Seems like ages ago when I discovered this whole new world related to new technologies and web 2.0 which I totally dig.
I participate actively in social media and I enjoy the privilege of sharing and learning with amazing and interesting people and professionals from all over the world. I am @sllengua 's alter ego.
