The Asociación Cultural de la Llingua Llïonesa El Fueyu signed some agreements with Leonese public institutions for promoting some municipality courses on Leonese language, as the town councils of León, Mansilla de las Mulas, Valencia de Don Juan, La Bañeza and Zamora and the provincial government of León[1]

Leonese Language Day[edit]

The Asociación Cultural de la Llingua Llïonesa El Fueyu first celebrated the Leonese Language Day on June 20, 2006. After that year, the town council of León organized for some years that Day with the support of a few Leonese language associations, all of them dependent on the political association Conceyu Xoven.
