This article proposes the application of a didactic sequence whose objective is the development of the sociolinguistic and intercultural competencies in learning Spanish as a foreign language. The proposal was applied to two groups that participated in the Spanish courses of the “Centro de Enseñanza para Extranjeros” from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
The sequence was designed in the blended learning mode in order to combine class activities with other activities that the student can perform independently outside the classroom. The didactic sequence is made up of thematic units to work on cultural and grammatical aspects, and are selected according to the education center’s intermediate level course program.
The results show the advantages of this proposal in three ways: the first was to confirm the interest and motivation of the students in deepening the social and cultural aspects of the target language. The second benefit is the importance of the short films as didactic material, as they allow the student to approach realities of interaction and communicative contexts the student may face during their stay in a Spanish-speaking country. Finally, it also revealed the benefits of combining face-to-face classes with the students’ autonomous work, which takes place on the platform and uses learning materials and activities designed for this purpose.
