  • Overview


    Upon successful completion of the Introduction to Catalan Language course, users are able to cope linguistically in a range of limited but basic survival situations which require a very predictable use of language. They can:

         - Give simple personal details about themselves, such as where they live, who they know, what they like and what they have.

         - Express basic needs. Ask for and give specific information using common, everyday expressions and very simple phrases.

         - Understand short texts, expressed in simple language, directed at the general public.

         - Identify the central topic of longer messages and extract the main relevant points.

         - Write short, simple notes and texts and complete forms with personal details.

Course Disclaimer

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.

Availability of courses is based on enrollment numbers. All students should seek pre-approval for alternate courses in the event of last minute class cancellations
