    (2012-08-31 00:00:00) Peñate, Marcos; Rodríguez, Alejandro
    One of the basic conditions required for university students to study a subject, using only books written in a foreign language, is that they have an acceptable level of reading. Nevertheless, we have tried to prove that having such a level is not enough and that students need an extra tool: a glossary of the specific terms used in the study area. This paper begins by giving a brief outline of the research carried out into how foreign language students reach an acceptable level of Reading. Then we present a case study made with students of Physical Oceanography at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), in which we try to prove the advantages of using a glossary of specific terms.

    (2012-08-31 00:00:00) Madrigal Abarca, Marta
    In this course I will present the results of an investigation into a pedagogical strategy for the teaching of written Spanish to non native students. The outcome of which is focused on the process rather than the product. This methodology is centered on distinct upper level thinking activities used by the writer to compose a text. It takes into account the complete period time, which begins when a circumstance is created which stimulates the idea for the production of the text and all the way through until it is finished. Within the scope of this process the final version of the text or product is demonstrated, but more important is the description and the learning of all the intermediate steps and strategies which can be utilized in the writing. In this way the process includes three stages: the pre-writing phase, first drafts and revisions. There is equal and vital importance given to the roles played by both students and teachers in this process.

    Migrantes finiseculares, identidades postnacionales: La frontera de cristal, de Carlos Fuentes.
    (2012-08-31 00:00:00) Barahona Novoa, Alberto; Sanabria Sing, Carolina
    At the crossroads of bordering areas and meeting points of diverse peoples, reflections on national identity bloom magnificently. The Mexico-U.S. borderline arises as a symbolic landmark of the Hispanic-American/Anglo-American "encounter and dis-encounter." However, thanks to the literary production of Carlos Fuentes, particularly in La frontera de cristal, such a border is rearranged into a space to solve Latin American identity issues, if migration is understood as a hybridization/crossbreeding phenomenon that prevails over and above the concepts of nationality and identity. With this material, Fuentes pulls together a nine-story novel, alluding to his own proposal of new models to understand reality and fiction.
