You can learn or go back to Occitan at any age !
The Limousin I.E.O., in partnership with communes, tourist offices and other bodies offers several evening classes in the region.
Other associations (Maison de Pays de St Auvent,…) and individuals offer Occitan teaching in Limousin.
You will find the whole set of classes, workshops and training sessions available in Occitany on the website www.aprenemloccitan.com.
« Aprenem l’occitan ! l’occitan je m’y mets » is an advertising campaign on adult classes run jointly by the Institute for Occitan Studies, the Occitan Language and Culture Teaching Centre and the Occitan Summer School.
The Limousin I.E.O. has been organizing one to two singing courses every year since 2006.
From 2006 to 2011, we’ve been organizing « Chantar e dançar lemosin », the Limousin week, in partnership with the Traditional Music Section of the Limoges Conservatoire and the Trad’bande.
This January theme week included an Occitan singing session with Jan dau Melhau, a Limousin dancing session with Françoise Étay and a lecture.
Since 2012, the formula does not exist any more but the Occitan singing session with Jan dau Melhau is continuing.
