VALENCIA LANGUAGE EXCHANGE (VLE),
the non-profit association, organizes the
II EDITION OF THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE FESTIVAL.
21 – 22 April 2018 in Marina de Valencia(HighCube).
A free event for people of all ages with language-related activities: music, theatre, conferences, gastronomy and training.
MULTILINGUAL ACTIVITIESMany professionals have demonstrated the relationship between games and languages. Through games, you can learn languages and not even realize it. During the event we will be holding multilingual activity programs for children and adults.
THEATER IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AND COURSESLive performances help you learn languages faster than other means; and watching expressions in theatre is a positive contribution in the acquisition of language skills. Throughout the event, several live performances will be held for an audience of all ages.
CONCERTS IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGESThe most enjoyable way to listen to a language is through music, and if the music is played live, even better. During the event, there will be concerts by foreign groups as well as local groups in both Spanish and Valencian.
Dances from different countries.
During the weekend, the INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE FESTIVAL will place Valencia on the international scene, with dozens of foreign guests: an event to promote language learning and multiculturalism through educational activities, recreational and educational activities for children, gastronomy, information regarding language studies, music and other cultural activities for all audiences.
LOCAL LANGUAGE SCHOOLSThe event is intended to help students who are considering enrolling in a language course. Several local schools will be present to provide more information about the courses they are offering.
INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE SCHOOLSWhen it comes to language courses abroad, it is sometimes difficult to obtain information about the institutions that offer these courses because they are located outside Valencia. In the festival, through their booths, they will be able to introduce themselves and show what they have to offer to those interested.
MARKET and STANDS OF BOOKSReading is the most important aspect of language learning, we believe that without books this festival wouldn’t have a soul. Thanks to AIDA BOOKS & MORE, a solidary bookstore, we will have a book stand.
PRESENTATIONS ON HOW TO LEARN LANGUAGESMultilingual professionals will be present at the event, so that attendees can get to know their theories and be able to apply them to themselves.
INTERNATIONAL CUISINEFood is one of the most important elements that encourages you to travel abroad. We will all discover foreign and Valencian cuisine through different restaurants that will go there to offer their delicious dishes.
LANGUAGE EXCHANGEThe exchange of languages and culture will be the main focus of the festival. The most effective method of learning a language is to mimic the way each person has learned their own language naturally, through social interaction. During the event, there will be several linguistic and cultural exchanges.
SPORT ACTIVITIESFor many professionals, sport facilitates learning; through its high levels of motivation, it strengthens the learning of new skills that can also be applied to languages.
VALENCIAN CULTUREIn order to not lose sight of Valencian culture, the event will include different activities that will promote the region’s culture in a fun way.

THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE FESTIVAL
With this project, the LANGUAGE EXCHANGE VALENCIA (VLE) association aims to promote language learning from a different perspective, emphasising the need to use languages to acquire full competence. VLE already has extensive experience in organizing this type of event, holding a “language exchange” on an almost daily basis in which hundreds of people meet to improve their knowledge of a particular language. ”Más

How Valencia Language Exchange works
In addition to the weekly meetings (every day of the week in a different establishment, in order to reach more people), VALENCIA LANGUAGE EXCHANGE organizes all kinds of events: trips to the mountains, cultural outings, karaoke, etc.. Over time, Valencia Language Exchange has become a big family for all the local people who attend these meetings, having had the opportunity to meet hundreds of people of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds.
How the meetings work
VALENCIA LANGUAGE EXCHANGE provides its users with the necessary resources to hold these meetings, with the collaboration of several bars, cafés and restaurants with sufficient capacity to host this type of event. The operation is very simple: when each person arrives at one of these establishments, an organizer is assigned to direct them to a table where other people interested in speaking a particular language have sat, either because they are learning it or because it is their native language. A few minutes after the start of each event, the establishment in question has become a multilingual gathering place.

Who is this festival aimed at?
01. TO LANGUAGE LOVERS
Speaking in a foreign language opens the doors for you on a personal and social level. It gives you mobility, travelling becomes more fun and it is easier to make friends, as well as experiencing and learning about new cultures.
02. TO PARENTS WHO ARE COMMITTED TO MULTILINGUAL EDUCATION
It is very important to learn languages from an early age in order to assimilate them naturally. At these ages, the brain is said to be a “sponge” and it is the perfect time to start feeding it with linguistic stimuli.
03. FOR THOSE CONSIDERING GOING ABROAD TO LEARN LANGUAGES.
It’s never been easier! We bring foreign schools to Valencia so that you can easily find out about the different courses they offer by visiting their booths.
