Communicative Competences Required in Initial Teacher Training for Primary School Teachers of Spanish Language in Contexts of Linguistic Diversity
Ferrada, Donatila; Del Pino, Miguel
International Multilingual Research Journal, v14 n1 p76-92 2020
The main objective of this research was to explore communication competence traits deemed as essential for initial teacher training of schoolteachers of language -- in both the Spanish and "Mapuzugun" -- by primary school teachers and university teachers who are familiar with linguistic diversity in the southern-central area of Chile in order to establish comparisons between their views of initial formation. Dialogic model ("kishu kimkelay ta che") participatory research method was used on two sample groups: one made up of teachers working in schools and another involving university teachers who train teachers-to-be. Results show an enormous gap between the concept of communication competence proposed by both groups; while one is rooted in bilingualism and biculturality linked to the territory in which they work, the other emphasizes formal and procedural aspects of the dominant language.
