About us

Stumdi has 31 years of experience providing Breton language courses. It offers professional services--language teaching, administration, and career guidance- that address the growing demand for opportunities to learn the Breton language. At Stumdi, students can study the Breton language, no matter what their level.

The Stumdi team (including 26 permanent employees) trains more than 350 students each year. The courses run from September until the end of July, and are held in four centers across Brittany: Arradon (56), Brest (29), Guingamp (22), Landerneau (29), Ploemeur (56) Pontivy (56) and Saint-Brieuc (22). Organizations can also request onsite courses for their employees.

The name STUMDI comes from the phrase"stummadur dibaouez", which means both "in-house training" and "house of training".
