Los piropos en el aula de E/LE

Leyre Martín Aizpuru, Lisset Pineda Morales, Virginia Vázquez Hernández


In this work we aimed to make four didactic proposals and materials that might be helpful in order to study the compliments in the Spanish as a Second Language (SSL) class. Flaterous comments and compliments are generally underestimated in language teaching, as we could observe from the analysis of a series of SSL workbooks. Therefore, we present several ideas on the nature of these expressions and on the benefitsof their presentation in the class.
