The Port of Tarragona’s Open Catalan Service
The Open Catalan Service (Servei Obert de Català - SOC) is a service with resources for learning the Catalan language and is characterised by the fact that the learner can set the schedule, the learning goals (a self-learning course or a course in person or on line) and the pace of study. It can be used by all the staff of the Port of Tarragona. This service provides a selection of the main Catalan self-learning materials, and offers the possibility of learning Catalan when and how the learner wishes, and where the user can find a number of resources and materials for learning Catalan and an adviser who guides and advises them. Self-learning is a system designed to learn Catalan more quickly, if you wish to refresh your knowledge of the Catalan language, maintain the knowledge you have acquired, don't have a fixed schedule for study, or have not found any course that will suit you for reasons of place, time, level, etc.
Resources you can find: computer programs, audio and video tapes, reference books (grammar books and dictionaries), recorded dictations, self-correcting exercise cards, examples and guidelines for those preparing to take Catalan tests, and self-assessment methods.

NITS DE LA LLENGUA AL MÓN DIGITAL (Language nights for the digital world)
This year, on the 4th Nit de la Llengua al Món Digital (Language Night in the Digital World) the proposed topic is film in Catalan, in addition to maintaining the translation line began in the previous edition of the viquimarató (wikimarathon).
This involves, therefore, completing and improving Wikipedia articles in Catalan that bring together information on films available in the Catalan language, regardless of whether they are dubbed or subtitled, or produced directly in Catalan. At the same time, it also involves translating quality articles about Catalan in several versions of Wikipedia into the main world languages.
PLE PEL CATALÀ AL CAMP DE TARRAGONA (ASSEMBLY FOR CATALAN LANGUAGE AT TARRAGONA AREA)
Assembly for Catalan Language at Tarragona Area brings together a very extensive assembly of institutions and organisations involved in promoting the Catalan language, either by exercising their natural activity or by providing it with explicit support.
This second group includes, among others, the Port Authority of Tarragona. The aim of these organisations is to contribute to the establishment of an effort that is as collaborative as possible in the sense of sharing the maximum amount of information, experiences and resources in order to create a network whose presence will at the same time be felt in the social fabric of the Tarragona area.
VOLUNTARIAT PER LA LLENGUA (VOLUNTEERING FOR THE LANGUAGE)
'Volunteering for the language' aims to put people who want to practise Catalan in contact with people who want to devote a few hours of their time to help them practise it. In this way, those who learn practise and the volunteer gets used to not changing language when spoken to in a language other than the Catalan. At the Port of Tarragona we have been working on this programme since December 3rd 2012, in conjunction with the Centre de Normalització Lingüística de Tarragona (Tarragona Language Use Standarisation Centre).
If you would like to become a volunteer, please contact this Language Service.
