SUMMARY – SEPHARAD PROGRAM 2017
SEPHARAD PROGRAM: Language, history and culture in Toledo
Intensive curse, organized in collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes, for people wishing to improve their knowledge of Spanish language and culture. Language and culture are taught through historical content-based lessons focused on medieval Toledo and Sepharad.
The “Sepharad program: Language, history and culture in Toledo” includes two one-week intensive courses, jointly organized by the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) and the Instituto Cervantes. It is targeted at students of Spanish, with at least B1 language proficiency level, who want to improve their Spanish language skills while learning about a key period of the History of Spain at the same time.
The courses will take place in Toledo, a city that was involved in and was one of the principal actors of that historic period. The program has also obtained the support of the National Sephardic Museum, the School of Translators of Toledo and the Sefarad Centre.
The students can choose between taking both courses and taking just one of them.
- “Toledo and Sepharad: key period of the Spanish history” (Course I),
- “After Sepharad: five centuries building the Sephardic” (Course II).
The prices of both courses include an interesting range of cultural activities in the afternon, such as visits of interesting monuments or places in the city, related to the subjects addressed in the course.
Further extracurricular activities are offered, including trips or conversation workshops (at additional cost).
At the end of the course the students will be issued an accredited certification of the course by both institutions (UCLM and Instituto Cervantes).
