Structure / Contents :

It is a blog, whose blog structure has two pillars, entries (they are based on a music video related to a specific theme of student interest, which is accompanied by a series of tasks related to the development of language skills) and resources (online dictionaries, directories and models for the evaluation of the Final Projects, examples of projects prepared by the students, recommended links for students, blogs recommended for teachers, popular posts, author's notes)

Among those competencies considered vital for a lifetime of successful participation in society, in our opinion, the development of both the Linguistic Competence and the Digital Competence are two sides of the same coin: the general educational development of the student.

At the same time they also clearly contribute to the development of another Key Competence, Learning-to-Learn, that -as we all know- is crucial in the educative context (Adult Education).
