An interdisciplinary research
This paper focuses on the description of the controversies that arise from the interdisciplinary work necessary for the creation of an on-line platform for learning Spanish as a foreign language, which we call ELEna. The platform develops the learning of written expression skills, thus promoting written production and interaction, the most demanded areas for the students of foreign languages nowadays. In this way, it has been necessary to create an interdisciplinary team made up of linguists and computer scientists who are specialized in the fields of Spanish language teaching and in the creation of interactive on-line platforms. This fact has led to a series of challenges that we present below with their respective solutions in pursuit of scientific progress.
