Abstract: Despite of the economic crisis Europe and Spain are facing, foreign-born workers are still increasingly becoming a crucial part of the European community and an important component of the local workforce. Taking the necessity of training newly arrived population into account, this paper aims to share with the scientific community an A1/A2 blended course of Spanish as a foreign language for immigrant workers following the policies of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, and Assessment. It differs from other language course since it is based in three focal and innovative cornerstones: specific cultural training for immigrant workers, preparation for fast cultural assimilation, overcoming illiteracy before arriving into the country. All that by means of the ubiquity provided by the ICTs and a great component of visual material which will help to overcome illiteracy and cultural problems originated in multiple ethnicities, bridging the gap between formal teaching practices and the experience of using language and culture knowledge by living in a target language country.
