Spanish and STEM | El español y las CTIM

I am convinced that Spanish plays an invaluable role as a language for scientific, technical, and environmental communication. Because of this, I have worked on pedagogical models and strategies to support those who are interested in Spanish language learning for scientific and technological applications.

Estoy convencido de que el español juega un papel invaluable como idioma para la comunicación científica, técnica y ambiental. Por ello, he trabajado en modelos y estrategias pedagógicas para apoyar a quienes estén interesados en el aprendizaje del idioma español para aplicaciones científicas y tecnológicas.
