    Catalan Language and Culture: a Practical and Fun Course

    Catalan is a romance language used by more than 11 million in Europe. Nowadays Catalan is fashionable because of its social movement in Catalunya, the fame of Barcelona and the multiple touristic attractions. In this course, the learning process is practical and combined with an immersion on the Catalan culture.

    My method is based in creating visual scenarios in which you will discover the words to use and the right way to make sentences in that situation. Once we can have a small conversation in that scenario, we will repeat it at the next meeting and it will be included in our "refresh quarter" which is a 15 minute revision on all the words and ways of saying that you keep learning. My focus is on connecting the language to your needs and wishes to make sure the learning is well grounded.

    Extra information

    !/ You can prepare a list of themes you would like to talk about, or the situations in which you wish to be able to talk.
    2/ I will invite you to a Google Drive Sheet where you can do more exercises and choose what to practice.

    About Me

    At the age of 36 I was making documentaries when a Media School asked me if I could give a workshop and a new adventure started with the discovery of teaching. To my surprise (I always thought I wasn't good enough to teach) the students made more short videos and reports than ever in the previous years of the school. It seemed that I was good for them and to share my knowledge and skills was a great experience.
    Nowadays, I give workshops and short courses or lessons, and I am developing games for education too. I am a passionate person who loves whatever I do because I like to know more, to have challenges and to work with others.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Documentary Filmmaker. Game Designer.
    Lecturer at Universitat de Vic - Universitat Central de Catalunya. 2005-2016.

Meanwhile, I directed 18! Final Thesis Projects.
    Guest Lecturer at International Institutions and much more.
    With this course you will learn Spanish in a playful easy way: we will look at the words and the grammar as part of a game that we play. So every time we play, we are better at it! Learning and practicing how to speak a language can be challenging. My method is based in playful learning while creating scenarios in which you will discover the words we need to use and the right way to make sentences in that situation. I prepare the scenarios based on the list of interests you have. Once we can have a small conversation in that scenario, we will repeat it at the next meeting and it will be included in our "refresh quarter" which is a 15 minute revision on all the words and ways of saying that you keep learning. My focus is on connecting the language to your needs and wishes, to make sure the learning is well grounded.
    Being able to express your ideas and projects in public is a fundamental ability for your professional career. In the audiovisual field where I have been working for fifteen years, giving a good convincing pitch was the only way to find investors for my documentary projects. Later, working as a teacher at a Faculty of Media and Communication, I had the opportunity to help students prepare their presentations, and very especially their Final Thesis Presentations. All and all, I have my personal toolbox for preparing anyone (welcome shyness!) to feel confident and at ease in order to communicate with the verbal language, the body language, and the visual language.
    What do you like about documentaries and what do you have to say to an audience? What insights can you give about your context? What stories near you have a meaning that matters? What images you see are powerful to touch the public? Your own ideas and experience is our main source for the decision making of what film are you ready to write and direct. The purpose of sharing my methods and process is that you find your own voice and style for developing meaningful documentaries and designing low cost production processes.
    This ia a five sessions course of two hours per session in which you will learn to prepare 5 healthy and tasty recipes that will give you the basis for preparing different meals. You will learn how to: - prepare fresh pasta with light ingredients and with a variety of sauces, - cook spiced rise and kinoa, - prepare tasty vegetables with different cooking methods, - prepare fresh meat and fish in a few minutes using the grill and the oven, At the same time you learn the cooking proceedings you will learn where to buy the freshiest ingredients and how to chose them.
    This is an eight hours course in which you will learn just enought to have your first experiences with Spanish speakers. You will learn with a visual method: - how to intrduce yourself - how to do basic shoppings - how to order food and drinks - how to ask for directions - how to express your opinion on basic daily stuff. For every hour of class you put another hour and a half of study and you will be ready for your first adventures in Spanish.

    Learn CATALAN ONLINE with a certified native teacher
    I am a native teacher from Barcelona, with a degree in History and as a Spanish teacher for foreigners. I have been teaching Spanish and Catalan private lessons for over 10 years, but I’ve also taught in the context of cultural associations and the French and Catalan national education. I am always happy to be part of my students’ learning journey; no matter what level you have, we will learn plenty of things together! :) I offer dynamic Catalan online classes adapted to each person and their needs. My lessons are oriented to all levels, using the language in real and pedagogic contexts. As a teacher, I am very interested in letting my students learn not only the language but also the Catalan culture, as it is a fundamental aspect to really be able to succeed in the learning process. In order to do so, we will work on all the different competences (oral and writing skills), grammar and vocabulary, of course, but also I like to use some real texts, videos, songs, etc., so we can get the chance to learn from real instructional materials and discuss the news and culture. The most important thing is to try to communicate in Catalan so you will become more and more fluent. We will get there step by step! I’ve helped a lot of students pass their exams, prepare their interviews and resumes, or just be comfortable in their oral practise. I am used to teach a language from scratch, I have long experience teaching high levels as well. Please, contact me for further information and let me know how I can help you.

    Spanish and Catalan lessons all levels and needs
    I am Spanish, translator and interpreter and I give private lessons of Spanish. Depending on the level, we follow the content of the school book, but also we monitor what we see together in a progressive way. I have experìence with teenagers and children as an escolar follow-up but also with adults. I teach since 2006, I started in Barcelona and then Brussels. I remain convinced that learning is bilateral and that we learn every day.

    Spanish, Italian and Catalan ONLINE lessons - mothertonge
    My first goal is making you feel comfortable and enjoy the lesson itself. Then i will mainly focus on learning through conversation based on current actions and real life, as this is one of the most efficient way of learning a language, but without forgetting the gramar, spelling and reading comprehension which are the pilars of a good conversation. You won’t have to worry about the material you will need to use, as I will offer it myself based on your level and goals. I love personalising all my lessons with the aim that all students achieve their own objectives, but what’s the most important is that they enjoy a ll the way through that; in Spanish we would say “Lo importante no la meta, es el camino hasta llegar a ella” or even in Italian we use the same expression “l’importante non è quello che trovi alla fine di una corsa, l’importante è quello che trovi mentre corri”. ¿Estás listo? ¡Empezamos! Sei pronto? Iniziamo!

    Eric
    To learn Spanish in a fast, easy and fun way in Dublin.
    My Spanish classes are open to everyone who is interested in learning this wonderful language, from children to adults. The lessons are always adapted to the needs of the learner. I always dedicate a few minutes to having a conversation about topics that interest the student, in order to be able to practise, at the same time, oral comprehension and expression, as well as to be able to touch on vocabulary. I also usually use text content with a topic appropriate to the student's level to work on reading comprehension. And, if the student agrees, I suggest that they write texts as homework so that they can apply the knowledge they have acquired.

    Learn Spanish / Catalan through your favorite topic
    Learning a new language can be bored and disappointing. However, it could be very exciting! Let's do it! We will learn Spanish or Catalan class using music, cinema, Spanish History, Barcelona, Catalunya, football, or basketball as a vehicle of knowledge. Or whatever you need! I prepare the classes in particular to each student, according to the level, the hobbies, and the age, of course. The first class is a kind of interview, with the parents or the student, or both, and it's for knowing ourselves in order to see the options and clarify the purposes and the goals. Enjoy learning Castellano or Català!
