Abstract: One of the objectives of this project is to comprehend how pre-service teachers’ development takes place. Thus, this small-scale project attempts to explore the argumentative skills used by future teachers. In this way, we can provide some ideas about how specific competences take place in the Foreign Languages program at the UPTC.
