Qualirom = Quality Education for Romani in Europe

QUALIROM developed teaching materials in various Romani varieties for primary, secondary and tertiary teaching at proficiency levels A1 to B2. Some of the materials were piloted in teaching activities during the lifetime of the project. Downloadable materials are listed below under the respective Romani variety:
  • ARLIJE ROMANI, a vital dialect cluster from mainly south eastern Europe with groups of migrant speakers in all European countries and beyond.
  • EAST SLOVAK ROMANI, an inter-regional variety with speech communities in Slovakia (SK) and in the Czech Republic (CZ) and with migrant speakers in many other EU countries. 
  • FINNISH ROMANI, an isolated variety whose speech community is currently undergoing a language shift with elders still perceiving their "language" as a tabooed in-group marker but, on the other hand, want their children to be taught the ethnic language. 
  • GURBET ROMANI, a dialect cluster that reaches from Macedonia via Bosnia-Herzegovina to Serbia and Croatia with speech communities all over Europe and beyond and with written varieties in use for some decades.
  • LOVARA ROMANI, an internationally spread variety from the wider Hungarian context; it is an integral part of RomanĊĦago 'Romaniness' and is used in the media, in political contexts and in inter-group contacts. 
  • KALDERAĊ  ROMANI, an internationally spread variety with speech communities all over Europe (and beyond) since the beginning of the 20th century, is perhaps the most important variety of the Romani political movement on the international level; it is the prime basis of an emerging "Inter-Roman".
