Documenta and Santander City Council launch the MINGLE Spanish courses for immigrants

cursos idiomaDocumenta and the Santander City Council in collaboration organized three Spanish courses, which began the 11th of February. These trainings are part of the program of activities of the European MINGLE project. At the inauguration of one of them - the one given at the CMICAD’s facilities - representatives of both the public body and the association attended it. The mayor of Santander, Gema Igual, the councillor for Family, Social Services, Immigration and Development Cooperation, María Tejerina, as well as the president of Documenta, Javier Farto, were the people in charge of welcoming the people who will participate in the course, which will last for four weeks.

In addition to the course that will be given at the CMICAD facilities, two more language trainings, of the same duration, are being developed at the UNILANG facilities. Some 65 people are currently receiving Spanish classes thanks to the MINGLE project. Previously, an initial course was started, carried out in Bezana, where 15 people participated. This training does not end here, since it is planned to do at least one more course of learning Spanish, in addition to the rest of the activities programmed within the project.

As we pointed out, these language courses are within the MINGLE project activity map. This project tries to promote the inclusion in the local society of third-country nationals - outside the European Union -, working at the same time fundamental skills to interact -as would be the learning of the language- and the promotion of mutual knowledge - both local and migrant people.
