In this course of intercomprehension Romance languages we read together in Italian, French, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese or Romanian. Of course, this is not a course with which you can learn six languages at the same time, but rather an exercise that allows those who already know one or two Romance languages to develop strategies for orienting themselves in a text written in another language of the same linguistic group.

To know more about the project of intercomprehension Romance languages

The idea behind linguistic research on intercomprehension Romance languages is that people who speak a Romance language as their mother tongue must be able to understand other languages of the same language group as well. Over the years, manuals of intercomprehension Romance languages have been published such as EuRom5.

Italiano: In questo corso di intercomprensione tra lingue romanze facciamo letture in italiano, francese, spagnolo, catalano, portoghese o romeno. Non si tratta naturalmente di un corso con cui si possono imparare sei lingue contemporaneamente, ma piuttosto di un’esercitazione che permette a chi conosce già bene una o due lingue romanze di sviluppare strategie per orientarsi in un testo scritto in una ulteriore lingua dello stesso gruppo linguistico.

Français: Dans ce cours d’intercompréhension entre les langues romanes nous lisons en italien, français, espagnol, catalan, portugais ou roumain. Bien sûr, il ne s’agit pas d’un cours avec lequel on peut apprendre six langues en même temps, mais plutôt d’un exercice qui permet à ceux qui connaissent déjà bien une ou deux langues romanes de développer des stratégies pour s’orienter dans un texte écrit dans une autre langue du même groupe linguistique.

Español: En este curso de intercomprensión entre lenguas romances leamos en italiano, francés, español, catalán, portugués o rumano. Por supuesto, este no es un curso con el que se pueden aprender seis idiomas al mismo tiempo, sino más bien un ejercicio que permite a quienes ya conocen bien uno o dos idiomas romances desarrollar estrategias para orientarse en un texto escrito en otro idioma del mismo grupo lingüístico.

Deutsch: In diesem Interkomprehensionskurs für Romanischen Sprachen lesen wir gemeinsam auf Italienisch, Französisch, Spanisch, Portugiesisch, Katalanisch oder Rumänisch. Natürlich handelt es sich hier nicht um einen Sprachkurs, durch den man sechs Fremdsprachen gleichzeitig lernen kann, sondern eher um eine Übung, die erlaubt, wenn man zumindest eine Romanische Sprache schon gut kann, Lernstrategien zu entwickeln, um die eigene Kompetenz im Leseverständnis von Texten aus derselben Sprachfamilie zu erhöhen.
