Catalogue of Initiatives
- Language learning
- Social inclusion
These courses are a series of 2 courses of Spanish language for refugees and migrants (the first course is basic Spanish and the second one, a continuation of the first one of elementary Spanish). They form part of the ERASMUS+ project MOONLITE (Massive Open Online courses eNhancing Linguistic and Transversal skills for social inclusion and Employability; ref. no.: 2016-1-ES01-KA203 025731; http://moonliteproject.eu) which run from 2016 to 2019). Although the project is finished, both courses remain open as self-study courses due to the usefulness and necessity on the part of displaced persons. Therefore, there is no tutorial support, only technical support.
Each course is made up of four content modules and one intro module with a pedagogical and technical guide made up of videos. They require approximately 25 hours of study time, 4 hours a week on average. The topics are the following:
- Module 1: Hello! Here we are
- Module 2: We live our daily life
- Module 3: We move around
- Module 4: We go to the doctor
- Module 1: We make plans
- Module 2: We look for a house
- Module 3: We study and work
- Module 4: We defend our rights
They are self-study courses. The course content is based on videos, audios, texts, and supplementary learning materials: transcriptions of videos, glossaries, and extra material with grammar explanations and practical suggestions for practicing the language.
Registration, participation, access to all materials and certification are free of charge.
