Arbeids- og undervisningsformer

Spanish 2 is a Blended Learning course with digital learning combined with three periods of campus training at OsloMet and two at the University of Valencia (Spain). The first semester is structured in an initial face-to-face week in Spain, and online training, with regular online classes, and an intermediate face-to-face period (1-3 days) in Oslo. The second semester starts with a 1-3 days face-to-face training in Oslo, followed by online training, one week face-to face training in Valencia, and a final 13 days’ face-to-face training in Oslo.


The course takes on a communicative approach, giving priority to the acquisition of skills in the teaching of Spanish as a Second Language, and will employ a mixed methodology (classroom and online) through the creation of a virtual space in a networked platform. In this way, tasks and assessments will be carried out from different methodological approaches that students can subsequently apply in their daily teaching.


The lecturers of the course are from the University of Valencia. Integrated in Spanish 2 is two periods of studying at the University of Valencia.

Arbeidskrav og obligatoriske aktiviteter

For the two courses that are included in Spanish 2, students will be asked to carry out different tasks (both face-to-face and online), that will be used as an element of evaluation of the work done, prior to the final exams that will take place in Norway at the end of each course. There is an 80 % attendance requirement for each course in both face-to-face weeks and online sessions. Attendance is compulsory because of the work methods involving dialogue and discussions. The programme emphasises student participation, cooperative learning and dialogue.
