Press release
Language.  Girona and Andorra,  23/07/2017

The 16th Catalan Language University Campus begins, in Girona and Andorra

In the 16th edition of the Catalan Language University Campus, in Girona and Andorra, organized jointly by the IRL and the Andorran Government, 30 students of Catalan abroad have the chance to improve their linguistic competence and cultural knowledge. The immersion, which takes place from 23rd July to 6th August, will be held jointly in Girona and Andorra.

The Campus offers a wide range of cultural and leisure activities and the possibility of being part of the social fabric and the natural context of Catalonia and Andorra. This is why the students of the University Network of Catalan Studies Abroad taking part in it will spend the first week in Girona, from 23rd to 31st July, and the second in Canillo, in Andorra, from 31st July to 6th August.

The students will supplement the 30 hours of Catalan classes given by specialist teachers with a 15-hour course on cultural features of Catalan speaking areas, focusing on sociolinguistic, artistic, literary and historical issues. Apart from the class time, various cultural or leisure activities will also be organized in the evenings and at the weekends, such as excursions, cultural walks, or visits to historical monuments.


As a novelty this year, the Campus revolves around the theme ‘Music and Landscape’. There will therefore be lectures focused on the urban, rural and emotional landscape, to give students a better idea of our cultural reality. In this way they will be able to associate knowledge of literature and art with their landscapes, and always associate it with the universal language of music. Therefore, there are three activities based on music: a Nova Cançó workshop given by Jordi Montàñez, a concert by Un Tal Pere at the Celler de la Vinyeta in Mollet de Peralada, and a jazz concert at La Pedrera.

Besides the Campus in Girona and Andorra, the IRL is also organizing, for the first time and jointly with the University of the Balearic Isles, a language stay in Palma de Mallorca from 3rd to 15th September. With this extra activity it will be easier for students from universities where the academic year ends later to take part.

The Campus will welcome students from 19 different countries, including Russia, Canada, Cuba and the United Kingdom.
