Enseñar léxico en el aula de español. El poder de las palabras
A glance at this book’s index reveals that the authors’ contributions include a wide variety of approaches in which, in addition to the core work focusing on a lexical approach, cover closely related fundamental concepts such as collocations, combinations and cognates. The various chapters also contain very useful tools for teachers of second languages, such as corpora and certain digital applications. We would also like to highlight the articles that link lexical teaching issues with basic aspects of learning a language, such as grammar, culture and teaching materials.
