The majority of studies on the Shipibo-Konibo, language of the Pano linguistic family spoken
mainly in the Amazonian department of Ucayali (Peru), are focused on its grammatical analysis.
There exist few studies devoted to analyse the communicative skills in Shipibo and Spanish of bilingual children enrolled in the intercultural bilingual education model (EIB). In this
sense, we analyze a particular textual genre, recipes written in those languages by children
between 11 and 13 who share the same learning environment. Following the methodology
used in research on acquisition and language learning in the context of a minority language
(Idiazábal and Garcia-Azkoaga, 2015; Manterola, 2012; Díaz de Gereñu and Garcia-Azkoaga,
2016, among others), we address the study from a socio-discursive perspective that considers
the text as piece to account for the abilities of students. We analyze the following textual
aspects: structure, connection, cohesion, and enunciative marks like modalization and voices.
The results allow us to identify the resources used by the students and to distinguish
the aspects on which we can influence to help them improve written communication of the
analyzed text genre.
