Didáctica del inglés en edades tempranas

Ayer, con una sesión extra dedicada al storytelling y a la evaluación terminó el curso Didáctica del inglés en edades tempranas. 

Muchas gracias a Juan Rubio por una nueva colaboración con este CEFIRE y a todas y todos los docentes que durante los últimos meses han podido participar en esta acción formativa, una propuesta que nos parece clave para abordar con garantías, más allá de la propia preparación en competencia lingüística del profesorado, la enseñanza y el aprendizaje de inglés en la etapa de infantil y en el primer ciclo de primaria.
