"Forging the Didactics of Sefardic Language and Literature" attempts to establish criteria for the instruction of Judeo-Spanish and its literature as a didactic unit. The problem of the future of the Sefardic language lies, among other factors, in our capacity to develop adequate projects for the language learning process. From February to April 2000 a course was given at the University of Tartu, Estonia, thanks to the generosity of the Soros Foundation. This article establishes the objectives, the methodology, and the themes for classroom instruction. The final objective of the course is to demonstrate that the Judeo- Spanish language and its culture are suitable material for instruction at any university.
