Spanish Courses

 The Spanish Department of the Faculty of Foreign Languages, offers Spanish Language Intensive Courses for non-Spanish speaking students. To that end it relies on an experienced faculty, with a background of more than 25 years.

Courses are offered to persons interested in learning or upgrading the Spanish language. Classes are taught with a communicative approach and are based on a productive and receptive practice of oral and written linguistic abilities, which provide students with strategies and knowledge needed to interact in a Spanish speaking environment. The exchange with the academic, social, and cultural life of our university guarantees to make the most of the advantages that studying the language in a Spanish speaking country provides.
