ALEHOP: Programme For The Development of Communicative Skills

It is an initiative to encourage pupils from 3 to 5 years old to learn Spanish in a school with a huge number of children whose mother tongue is Tamazight. The teacher of audition and language appears in the classroom wearing a pink tutu with little bells, beautiful hats and magic wand. She represents Alehop, a character who comes from the Fantasy Land to help the kids learn Spanish. She encourages them to speak Spanish through emotions. Speaking is considered a necessity and a wish to express dreams, choices, thoughts and questions among others. The use of tales, games, songs, gestures and images make the pupils speak to express their feelings. The results have been measured and they are quite positive getting a high level of participation on the pupils’ side. This is a project designed in 2009 and can be always applied being a permanent approach to teach language.
