Considering aims 1, 2 and 3 of the subject are based on the learning of a foreign language (basic level) and sociocultural aspects, oriented especially to the communicative part, it is convenient to use pedagogical methods that encourage the active participation of the students and a mixture of methods and techniques to develop aims 1, 2 and 3.
In order to be able to correctly understand and apply grammatical rules and vocabulary (aims 1 and 2), deductive, inductive and comparative methods will be taken into account, as well as techniques methods of expository, interrogative and demonstration methods.
The achievement of aim 3 will be developed with a combination of interactive and expository methodology and through discovery. Similarly, the nature and diversity of
material resources to be used as a support of the methodology correspond fundamentally to aims 1 and 2 that refer to communicative aspects in situations of oral and written interaction.
