The fourth edition of the Barcelona summer Language Stay welcomes 25 students of Catalan from all over the world

The Institut Ramon Llull, in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, is organizing a language stay for students of Catalan from foreign universities and other educational centres. The stay begins next Wednesday and will last until 29th July, and it combines Catalan language and culture courses with a programme of leisure activities. Language exchanges and conversation groups with UB students have also been planned, making the most of all the advantages that summer in Barcelona offers. 

Estada lingüística d’estiu a Barcelona

About 25 students from the University Network of Catalan Studies Abroad, coordinated by the IRL, will be taking part in the language stay, coming from Germany, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Spain, Israel, Italy, Mexico, the UK, the Czech Republic and Serbia. Once they have begun their Catalan studies, the Language Stay offers students the possibility of improving their knowledge through the experience of living in the Catalan capital for two weeks, and thus coming into direct contact with Barcelona and the language.

The participants in the stay will arrive in Barcelona on Wednesday 13th July. The activities will begin the following day and will last until 29th July. In the mornings, from Monday to Friday they will do a Catalan language course in the Historical Building of the UB, to be given by specialist teachers from the university’s Language Services Department. The classes will be combined with specific sessions about Catalan culture, approached from the perspective of art, literature, sociolinguistics or its traditions.

Furthermore, the training will be completed with conversation groups and other activities of a more relaxed nature, such as a visit to La Pedrera, a visit to the Catalan Parliament, participation in one of the practice sessions of the Colla Castellera de Barcelona, or several evening outings to concerts in the season Els vespres de la UB! The day-to-day events in the stay can be followed on the blog


15th Catalan Language University Campus

Taking place simultaneously to the Language Stay will be the 15th edition of the Catalan Language University Campus, also organized by the Institut Ramon Llull, together with the government of Andorra, and which will be held from 24th to 31st July in Girona and from 31st July to 7th August in Canillo, Andorra.

As an interesting novelty, on 25th July a special session has been organized in Hostalric that will bring the students on the Language Stay together for the first time with those on the University Campus, and which will consist of a Catalan course at Hostalric Town Hall, a visit to the walls and a cookery workshop given by the Cooks of Sils at the Domus Sent Soví gastronomic centre.

The Language Stay is organized by the IRL in collaboration with the University of Barcelona and will take place in Barcelona from 13th to 29th July
