Description

Fils de conversa consists of 10 thematic units that deal with current topics; in each one you will always find four blocks that we call fils, "threads" in Catalan: Mira i parla ("Look and speak"); Escolta i parla ("Listen and talk"); Guaita i opina ("Observe and give your opinion"), and Parlem-ne i fem ("Let's talk and do"). Each thread proposes four activities aimed at introducing vocabulary, encouraging reading among peers, practising linguistic and communicative structures and, above all, facilitating conversation.

There are over 300 activities that promote exchange and conversation. See the user guide (Guia d’ús) for a more detailed explanation of how it works.

Prepared by the Secretariat for Language Policy.
