What strategies do you use to promote effective study time in your class?: I always ask questions about the topic we’re talking about, how they can relate it to previous topics and how they can relate that with advertising.

Will it be different in English? Why?: At first I think it will be differente because of the topics. In Spanish yoy know they can analyze anu topic, even if they’re not to familiarized with it, but in English I think it’s very important to look for easier topics so students can feel more comfortable.

How do you usually engage your students in class?: I like to bring to class vey updated contents. In advertising everything changes very fast and all tha happens in the world can be analyzed from a communication perspective, so I bring news, advertising campaignes, political issues and ask for theirs perspective of them. That way we stars really intersting conversations in the classroom.

How will you engage them differently in your EMI classroom?: I think would do the same. As I said before, maybe with easier contents, but I think the strategy would be the same. Also I can use some tools if they don’t feel comfortable talking, for example, use online boards like Padlet or Jamboard, that way, they can write instead of speaking.

What are your students usually expected to do in your class in terms of production and reflection?: The always have to do an activity in which the show they understood the topic; they apply what we talked about. And we ussually do it taking an actual situation.

What elements from the previous sections studied could you use for your EMI course?: In general the ESA aproach is great. And at the end seeing that we have some freedom to change the order gives me more ideas, because I think it’s important to make some mistakes or beeing in constant improving, so when you have different paths, I think that works better.
