IU's first summer session will take place in the six weeks between May 11
and June 17.

The course may be taken for both undergraduate and graduate credit. Non-IU
graduate students from CIC institutions may apply for a CIC Foreign
Language Enhancement Program scholarship (in the amount of $1,500) to help
defray tuition and residence costs. For information contact the CIC main
office at 302 East John Street, Suite 1705, Champaign, IL 61820; (217)

C 400 is an introductory course. No previous knowledge of Catalan is
expected, but students should be proficient in another Romance language.
The aim of the course is to teach the basics of Catalan grammar from a
practical point of view, but emphasizing reading. A component of the course
is an overview of some of the specifics of the present-day Catalan cultural
scene (the political situation, socio-linguistic issues, contemporary
literature). In the Summer Session the course is intensive meeting daily
for periods of 1 hour and 15 minutes.

IU graduate students can fulfill one of their second-language requirements
by taking 2 Catalan courses. This could be done by taking C400 this summer
and C450, a survey of Modern Catalan Literature, in the Fall of 1999. Some
graduate credit can be earned at IU with 400-level courses; you may consult
the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department.
