TEACHING MUSIC AND ENGLISH AS SECOND LANGUAGE: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY METHODOLOGY

M.M. Palenzuela, S. Jover Rodríguez

Universidad de Almería (SPAIN)
Due to the existing situation in the Spanish Universities, where obtaining a linguistic accreditation for obtaining a degree is a mandatory issue, it is necessary approaching the field of teaching second languages to other academic disciplines so that, on the one hand, students familiarize with other languages and on the other hand, the implementation of methodologies that integrate at least two academic disciplines can make easier the linguistic accreditation.

The main objective aroused our interest is the interaction between the intellectual mechanisms that musical training and learning English as a second language provide to the students, feeling that it could be a favorable element that generates a better predisposition for such learning.

There are many common points between music and language so we can also find many interdisciplinary analogies. Both, music and language are mainly based on a series of physical and psychophysiological requirements that determine them, so we can speak about morphological and syntactic elements as the basis of a subsequent rhetoric.

In this paper we describe an interdisciplinary program where music and English as a second language are taught together in order to facilitate the acquisition of linguistic accreditation among music students in some grades at the University of Almería.
