SUMMER INTENSIVES 2021

THE CENTRE D’IDIOMES LAUNCHES ITS MOST AMBITIOUS OFFER OF SUMMER COURSES IN ITS HISTORY

València, 1st of June 2021.- English, Valencian, Spanish as a Foreign Language, French, German, Italian and a pilot project of Inter-comprehension in Romance Languages make up the main pillars of “the most ambitious offer of Summer courses in the history of the Centre d’Idiomes de la University of Valencia”, as described by the new director, José Villar, of the centre located on the Calle Serpis in Valencia, right at the heart of the Tarongers Campus.

Over the months of July and August, the Centre d’Idiomes of the University of Valencia will open its doors from Monday to Saturday, mornings and afternoons, to offer the whole university community in particular and the general Valencian public (adults, young learners and children) the possibility of learning a new language, reinforce knowledge already gained or prepare for official exams and certifications. All this without forgetting the broad offer of Spanish courses aimed at students and visiting foreigners; or the wide range of Valencian to prepare for official exams of the Official Language School and the Qualifications of Knowledge of Valencian Board (JQCV).

With prices between 480€ for the most expensive and 5€ for the cheapest, according to the length of each course, the offer of Summer intensives at the Centre d’Idiomes of the UV adapts like no other to the need of pluri-linguistic education, not only for students, but also for the professionals of the principle productive sectors in Valencia.

A good example would be the English intensive courses. Not only do we have courses at all levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2), but we also carry out preparation courses for most of the official certification boards: PACLE, the Official Language School, Cambridge Linguaskill, First Certificate, Proficiency, Advanced, IELTS and TOELF. Other intensive courses of Legal English, English for Healthcare, English for the Hospitality Industry, English for Tourism, Financial English, Business English and administrative correspondence workshops and telephone English have been organized. What is more we should add a broad diverse offer of speaking workshops and conversation groups, from Monday to Friday and also Saturdays. Not forgetting the little ones, because you can matriculate from the age of 7 in the intensive English courses at the Centre d’Idiomes of the UV.

Spanish as a Foreign Language

The possibility of learning Spanish at the Centre d’Idiomes for any student or tourist visiting Valencia this summer has been increased. In order to meet the growing demand following the lockdown in one of the European cities with one of the best results in the fight against COVID-19.

As well as courses at different levels, the offer of Spanish for foreigners includes a great variety of courses to improve communicative skills, such as “Language and Culture”, with activities that take place outside the centre, in the City of Valencia itself, through cultural visits and language practice in real situations. Or courses of “Language Tourism”, which will be carried out with dynamic activities also outside the classroom, in weekly modules that begin each Monday, so the student can chose the weeks he or she wishes.

The offer for Spanish for Foreigners in the Summer intensives 2021 is rounded off with preparation for Certification Exams DELE as well as courses of spoken and written expression adapted to each level.

German, French and Italian

The rest of the foreign languages given at the Centre d’Idiomes of the UV, not only have a wide range of levels, the summer courses include specific courses for outgoing Erasmus students with cultural workshops focused on improving the communicative skills in different situation in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, with titles such as “The Appetizer”, “Press Conference” or “Cinema Festival” in German, French and Italian.

Inter-comprehension in Romance Languages

Inter-comprehension is the capacity to understand an unknown language through another know language, as long as it is from the same linguistic family. It is one of the pluri-linguistic focuses supported by the European Council.

The Centre d’Idiomes de la UV, in collaboration with the Complutense University of Madrid, is offering for the first time to its students a pilot program of courses of inter-comprehension in Romance languages (Valenciano, Spanish, French, Italian, Gallego and Portuguese). These are 18-hour courses (2 weekly 2-hour sessions), in which texts are read in these languages and afterward “deciphered”. What we lean is to make inferences and better measure the interlinguistic distance. Inter-comprehension allows us to open up to other languages; broaden horizons; help to prepare Erasmus stays; as well as building motivation and self-confidence in our own capacities to learn languages.

Summer reductions

The Centre d’Idiomes keeps its agreement with the students, teaching staff and the other workers of the University of Valencia over the Summer season. The UV students will have a 25% discount on the price of those courses the same or longer than 15 hours. Furthermore, the Languages Service subsidises 100% of the enrolment fees for Valenciano courses and 50% for English, French, German and Italian courses at the Centre d'Idiomes for the University of Valencia staff.
