Seminar 2.3 – Multilingualism, The Philippines and Linguistic Tools and International Convention on Philippine Literature in Spanish


This seminar is composed of 2 seminar sessions and an International Convention.

Both sessions of the seminar will focus on the Common Framework of Reference for the Languages: Learning, Teaching and Assessment issued by the European Council in 2001 and recently updated by a Companion volume in 2018 with the idea of disseminating “plurilingualism” and interculturality among its member states.

Sessions will also focus on the Teaching of Spanish as a second language, the language of advertising and close vs. distant reading.

The Convention, on the other hand, will highlight the value of Philippine literature written in Spanish in order to emphasize its connection with the Spanish-speaking community and its relevance in the Asian context.
