The Secretariat for Universities and Research, in collaboration with the Language Services of the Catalan Universities, launched a new website to ease the learning of third languages. This website,

Aprenc idiomes

(learning languages), is mainly aimed at university students in Catalonia. It provides content to learn languages by oneself, and offers information and documentation on the several options the students have to learn languages at the university. At the moment, this new online tool is available in Catalan, Spanish, Aranese and English. The online resources

Aprenc idiomes

offers are free of charge.

It is structured over several areas that include information on the offering of language courses; examinations and official certificates; grants and scholarships, resources and tools, and several options to conduct language exchanges.

In this sense, the portal offers a relation of university centers and official language schools (EOI) that offer courses in several languages, levels and learning formats. Also, the students can get information about exam calls by universities and the EOI that enable obtaining official language certificates.

Regarding grants, the portal gives information about the aids in the program Parla3, for the B2 level certificate tests, and for courses of third languages, carried out at the Catalan universities, EOI and the Open Institute of Catalonia (IOC), as well as information on grants for international mobility, MOBINT, all of these managed by the Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR), and on other grants for the Catalan universities.

In the resource area, the portal has a series of resources, guidelines and activities to help completing the language learning autonomously: online programs and phone apps, resources to write in English and other languages, etc. It also gives information and tools for those students who have to leave abroad or international students who are coming to Catalonia to study. They can download Guies de conversa universitària (conversation guidelines), a phone app that combines Catalan with eleven other languages.

Last, the web offers a series of specific resources for the university teaching staff, such as materials to help them teaching in English.
