TO GET READY FOR THE SELECTIVITAT, THE GRIPAU OF THE UNIVERSITIES

Gripau is a support tool especially designed for high school students that lets them revise some language and writing skills, as well as basic terminology. Prepared by the Valencian universities since 1993/1994 with the support of the Conselleria d’Educació of the Generalitat Valenciana, which is the Valencian regional ministry of culture. The Gripau can be useful to all schools where Valencian students are preparing for university access.

For several days Valencian universities have sent a link to all public and private high schools in order to "provide information about universities (curricula, teaching in Valencian, scholarships, services, etc.), different Valencian software resources and the Gripau, a material that lets them revise language and writing skills, as well as basic terminology to help them improve exams and the use of Valencian in the university entrance exams,” according to Josep Forcadell, head of the Servei de Política Lingüística of the University of Alicante and one of the project coordinators.

Forcadell assures that the will of the universities and language services "is to work with schools to improve the preparation of students and offer information on training resources they will find in Valencian universities". However, he points out that the Gripau "is not a manual nor intends to replace a scheduled academic training, in fact, it is a compilation of stylistic and linguistic recommendations that are not always included in the curricula".
