Learner shops

Comerços aprenents is a project that provides local businesses with essential Catalan language training for people who provide customer service but speak very little Catalan. These people often cannot attend a Catalan course due to their work schedules, and for this reason, the linguistic normalisation officers come to the shop to offer them these training sessions.
