UNITA Summer school: Intercomprehension in Romance languagePau Campus - Registration before June 15th, 2023

In a nutshell :

University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour, in collaboration with its UNITA partners, offers a Summer School on mutual understanding of Romance languages. During this week, participants will be immersed in Romance languages and will discover French and Occitan culture. This unique experience will allow students from UNITA partner universities to learn to understand and make themselves understood, while speaking their own language.

What is intercompréhension?

Intercomprehension is a way of communicating based on the similarities between languages of a same family. Thus, each person expresses himself or herself in his or her own language and can understand the others.

The aim of this summer school is to develop skills in comprehension, production, and interaction, both written and oral, in communicative situations in intercomprehension, particularly in specialized fields (intercomprehension on specific objectives).
