Once again, the Institut Ramon Llull, the Valencian Academy of Language and the Vives Network have come together to organise the Introductory Course for the teaching of Catalan as a foreign language, which will take place at Vinaròs and Morella between the 27th and 29th October 2017. This eighth edition includes elements of the Masters in Teaching Catalan as a first and second language of the University of Barcelona, the University of Vic – Central University of Barcelona and the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and of the Faculty of Education and Department of Catalan Philology of the University of Alicante.
The course is aimed at graduates in Philology, preferably in Catalan Philology, Translation and Humanities, and at students in their final year of study in these subjects, with the aim of contributing to the training of future Catalan teachers at overseas universities. In this edition of the course, once again the demand has far exceeded the supply and the 40 available spaces have been filled.
The start of the course will take place on Friday at 12PM, at the Vinaròs Municipal Library, where accreditation and issue of documents to the participants shall occur. The first work session will be on Friday afternoon with an introduction to language teaching led by Professor Montserrat Vilà (Autonomous University of Barcelona) and Professor Llorenç Comajoan (University of Vic – Central University of Barcelona).
Throughout Saturday the Morella Town Hall shall host various sessions and workshops which will tackle teaching strategies for teaching foreign languages, teaching advice for practical work, and evaluation criteria and ways to stimulate the study of language and culture overseas.
The final session will take place at the Morella Town Hall this same Saturday at 7:15 PM and will include the participation of Rhamsés Ripollés, mayor of Morella; Josep-Anton Fernàndez, Head of the Area of Language and Universities of the Institut Ramon Llull; Ramon Ferrer, President of the Valencian Academy of Language, and Ignasi Casadesús, Executive Secretary of the Vives Network.
