Learning a new language means coming into contact with a new culture. It implies the possibility of approaching, knowing, and contrasting cultural keys and values that are different from one’s own. After all, language not only reflects but is capable of transmitting these cultural components through its use. The learning of the native language for the migrant population in the host country is crucial to achieve greater autonomy in their social interactions and to decide, more freely, the degree and depth of their inclusion in the host society. However, this learning process and the acquisition of a specific communicative competence can be a frustrating experience due to the multiple constraints faced by this group. When illiteracy meets the lack of knowledge of the language, a set of difficulties arise for both the teacher and the learners, who must make an extra effort to stimulate multiple resources and, in particular, their memory

 

As the ultimate goal in Fundación Abrazando Ilusiones is not to compensate for shortcomings, but rather to contribute to a social transformation based on solidarity and equal opportunities, we believe that teaching Spanish to this group requires a clear sense of commitment. Therefore, we consider language as an instrument for dialogue, understanding, and cooperation between individuals. That is why we actively seek new strategies, methodologies, and resources to apply to the specific needs of our Spanish students (scholarship covering 100% of the cost of the course paid by the Foundation).

The Foundation has offered many courses in this area since its beginnings and is currently implementing the “Con Ñ de Sueño” project,which includes two Spanish courses for the migrant population. These courses are separated according to the level of language proficiency to provide students with fundamental communicative competencies and strengthen their sociolinguistic and intercultural skills. The purpose of this initiative is to pave their way towards a future full of dreams.

 

 

“”What makes me myself and not someone else

is that I am in the middle of two countries,

between two or three languages,

between several cultural traditions.

That is my identity…”
