    critical language awareness
    Hey there

    I have to translate the term Critical Language Awareness (CLA) into spanish, and despite I understand it and what it is about, there is little or none literature about it in spanish and I was wondering if any of you has a suggestion for me. I appreciate you help, lads and gals.

    And Old

    this is an approach regarding discourse analysis and current linguistics, it may help

    If its what you say (i have not checked it myself) taht there is little literature about it, I would keep the name and explain its meaning between brackets.

    Hi An Old, I've been googleing your question, and guess what? I've been on WR. I agree with the German member and as them I'd use "lenguaje" and not "lengua" since "lenguaje" is the "ability we have, as human beings of having (a) "lengua".
    When I studied to become a "lengua" teacher (although we say "el lenguaje matemático""el lenguaje arcaico" we say "la lengua inglesa" "la lengua madre" (ie: mother tongue NOT mother language!) , our teacher used to say this.

    Hope this helps
    Auf Wiedersehen!
