Types of activities
All skills are worked on in an integrated manner: oral and written expression and interaction, oral and written comprehension, and oral and written mediation. The didactic proposals and exercises are motivating, dynamic and meaningful. Interactions take place in pairs, threesomes, small groups, or the whole class, exactly the same as in real life.

Treatment of diversity
We know that each individual has their own learning style and that people have multiple abilities and intelligences. We put tasks at your fingertips to discover how they learn best and develop their talents fully.
Cooperative work is also a way to develop and share different strategies to achieve a common goal.

Oral and written mediation activities
- Simultaneous interpreting, consecutive interpreting and informal interpreting.
Exact translation, literary translation, abstract and paraphrase
All the activities proposed in the classroom are governed by three principles: variety, diversity and equality:
- Variety so as not to fall into monotony and maintain the interest of the students
- Diversity for each student can enhance their talent
- Equality providing each and every one of them the same opportunities for participation
Language immersion context
At Marta Mas Languages student groups are characterized by being multilingual and multicultural. Students who are in a linguistic immersion situation are directed to interact as much as possible with the environment: with exercises that require social interaction with native speakers (interviews, surveys…) or collect samples of the linguistic landscape (signs, brochures, labeling…).
