Abstract

Introduction: The film world represents one of the exponents with the greatest didactic potential for fostering the acquisition of ICC. On the language level, it facilitates learning through countless meaningful situations. Culturally, it enables learners to find a bridge over which to overcome stereotypical assumptions. ICTs, for their part, help different educational stakeholders share a common language aimed at strengthening the teaching-learning process. This compendium of joint strengths constitutes the purpose of CiñELE, a project aimed at reducing the linguistic and socio-cultural barriers associated with learners of Spanish as a foreign language in the Thai context. Methodology: An exploratory study was carried out, starting with an initial questionnaire, followed by the implementation of an ad hoc didactic unit, and concluding with a final questionnaire. Results:  The intervention reveals a positive reception of the didactic materials used, resulting in a significant improvement of the target group's ICC. Discussions:Despite the successful implementation of the project, there is a latent resistance to methodological change from more traditional learners. Conclusions:  Therefore, similar intervention initiatives are needed in the short and medium term.
