Pilar Yagüe


I have always been interested in education and languages, so it was clear from the beginning what I wanted to do. Although philology has been my main branch of study, my entire career has revolved around the didactics of languages, both in the practical and in the theoretical part. My final degree project was based on the importance of culture for the teaching of French as a second or foreign language.

I really like traveling not only to see new places, but to learn about new cultures and practice languages. From the age of 17 I started traveling to study English in New York and Dublin and French in Paris and Geneva. For this reason, my second language is French, which I started studying more than fifteen years ago at the institute and then went on to study French history, linguistics and literature at the university, with classes in French. I also have a high level of English, which allows me to better communicate with beginning-level students who need some explanations in another language.


My name is Pilar and I am going to make a brief introduction about myself so that you know me. I have a degree in Spanish Language and Literature, which I studied at UNED, with the specialty of teaching Spanish as a second and foreign language. I have also studied the master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at the University of Nebrija. Thanks to the master’s degree and the internships, I began to produce didactic material for all levels, from A1 to C2, with collaborations at Madrid Spanish Institute. I have experience giving language classes to children and adults, with volunteering in the Red Cross of French classes to older people. It is important to mention my current master’s thesis, which I will present live at the end of September 2020 at the University of Nebrija, and which deals with the teaching of taboos and euphemisms to speakers of Chinese origin of level B1.1 through of the flipped classroom method. The flipped classroom method combines work in class with work at home with the use of technological resources provided by the teacher to the students, such as videos, audios, texts or exercises, among others. This entails a small investigation on the teaching of culture and pragmatics for languages, as well as a didactic proposal of four classes around this topic and resources.
