THE UV LANGUAGE CENTRE ARRIVES AT THE ONTINYENT CAMPUS
The Ontinyent Campus will offer English and Valencian courses from the University of Valencia Language Centre for the first time this year. Open to everyone, university students will be able to benefit from significant discounts.
During the 2021-2022 academic year, the Ontinyent Campus of the University of Valencia will offer a wide range of English and Valencian courses that are open to everyone. Thanks to the collaboration established for the first time in its history with the University of Valencia Language Centre, the Ontinyent Campus has made a firm commitment to internationalisation and multilingualism in its classrooms.
This collaboration will bring about 90-hour English courses from October 2021 to May 2022 in the morning (from 12:00 to 14:00) for B2 level and in the afternoon (from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) for B1 level, two days a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) in both cases. In addition, the range of English teaching also includes shorter courses for older adults at UniSocietat (University and Society), lasting for about 45 hours and also taking place from October to May. These are practical English courses for travel, expressly designed by the teachers of the UV Language Centre, in which simple grammatical structures and specific vocabulary for basic tourism activities abroad will be taught
As for the teaching of Valencian, the University of Valencia Language Centre will teach C1 level courses in Ontinyent, designed to pass the official certification tests of the JQCV (Qualifying Board of Knowledge of Valencian), the EOI (Official School of Languages) and the CIEACOVA (Inter-University Committee for the Standardization of Credentials of Knowledge of Valencian). These are 90-hour courses from October 2021 to May 2022, both in the morning and in the afternoon (from 12:00 to 14:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00 respectively) two days a week (Mondays and Wednesdays).
In addition, a specific Valencian course has also been planned for our older adults from UniSocietat. Its aim is to teach students how to write correctly in Valencian in a practical way, using texts that students will create themselves following creative writing techniques. The example texts that will be used will come from a selection of texts from prestigious literary works written in Valencian.
UV Student Discounts
As in the other University of Valencia campuses, the Languages Service subsidises English and Valencian courses for students at the Ontinyent Campus. The price of these 90-hour courses for UV students is € 330, while the price of the same courses for the general public comes to € 522.
In short, the University of Valencia has once again shown its commitment to local and regional development as established by the Lisbon Strategy. In this case with the city of Ontinyent, the region of La Vall d'Albaida and its neighbouring areas by promoting multilingualism and internationalisation through the new collaboration between this University Campus and the University Language Centre.
The courses will take place in the Ontinyent Campus classrooms (Avda. Conde Torrefiel, 22) and will be taught by prestigious teachers from the University of Valencia Language Centre.
