UAM-DAIC (Discourse Analysis and Intercultural Communication)


Welcome to the UAM-DAIC web page.

DAIC is the acronym of Discourse Analysis and Intercultural Communication and is used here to refer to the interdisciplinary research group founded in 2009 and sited at the UAM. Most UAM-DAIC members are University lecturers with experience in second language education and teacher training.

On this page you will find information about the work we do on discourse analysis, intercultural communication and educational linguistics (second language teaching pedagogies from a sociocultural perspective, second language teacher development and classroom research). You will also read about our most recent publications, about the corpora we have gathered during this fruitful time of collaboration and about the teaching materials we have developed to be used in foreign language teaching and education.
