Teacher Training

The Institut Ramon Llull provides ongoing training for teachers within 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 (CLE), with the cooperation of universities and other institutions both within Catalan-speaking areas and abroad.

Every year the Institut Ramon Llull brings Catalan teachers together at a university within a Catalan-speaking area for a conference that serves not only as a training session and a refresher course on teaching tools and resources, but also offers participants the opportunity to share teaching experiences. Twenty-six of these conferences have been held to date.


Within the framework of ongoing teacher training, the Institut Ramon Llull, in cooperation with universities abroad, organizes training workshops for teachers of Catalan as a foreign language (CLE).

  • I Workshop for UK based Catalan tutors, The University of Manchester
  • II Workshop for UK based Catalan tutors, University of Birmingham
  • III Workshop for UK based Catalan tutors, Queen Mary, University of London
  • Giochi di parole: parole in gioco. Corso di formazione per professori di lingua catalana, Università di Napoli Federico II
  • I Curs Ensenyar català a Espanya i Portugal: idees i experiències
  • II Curs Ensenyar català a Espanya i Portugal: idees i experiències
