    I am not only a fluent Spanish-English reader/speaker but also a bi-cultural person who has a broad solid background. I also have a passionate interest in different expressions of music, especially many American styles and their combinations (Folk-Country, Jazz, Pop, Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Soul, and so on), dance, stage and screen, and some other forms of artistic expression.

    A total of 23 older adults receive a Basic Conversational English Workshop at the National Technical University (UTN), in Alajuela. The idea arose from the different proposals developed by the teaching staff working for the Institutional Program of Languages ​​for Work of the UTN.

    The methodology consists of learning through a constructivist pedagogical model, that is, it is constructed through human dynamism and communication. The style of the classes is supported by experiences similar to the daily life of the elderly people.

    In the workshop, the use of technological resources really facilitates the teaching process. Apps of different mobile devices have favored them in a positive way for learning and, at the same time, they have allowed them to interact with each other and make inquiries to the teachers to reinforce knowledge.

    Older adults have already completed level 1A, lasting 4 months, and are currently receiving lessons at level 1B.
