Continuing Teacher Training

The Institut Ramon Llull provides continuing training for teachers in the University Network of Catalan Studies Abroad. This is accomplished through the organisation of courses, seminars and conferences on methodology, strategies and didactic resources for learning and teaching Catalan as a Foreign Language (CFL), in cooperation with universities and institutions within Catalan-speaking areas and abroad.

Every year, the Institut Ramon Llull brings Catalan Studies teachers together at a university within a Catalan-speaking area for a conference that serves not only as a space for training and refreshing one’s knowledge of the tools and didactic resources available for language learning, but also as a meeting place where teaching experiences can be shared.


Within the framework of continuing teacher training, the Institut Ramon Llull, in cooperation with universities abroad, organises courses and conferences for countries or larger geographical regions.

Since 2010, courses have been organised in Birmingham, Bristol, London and Manchester for teachers in the United Kingdom and Ireland; in Naples and Venice for teachers in Italy; in Brno and Budapest for teachers in eastern European countries; in Saarbrücken for teachers in Germany; in Lille for teachers at French universities; in Montreal for teachers in Canada and the United States; and in Madrid for teachers in Spain and Portugal.


The Institut Ramon Llull also promotes the training of future Catalan language teachers at universities abroad.
