Onground courses


Our in-class programs comprise two intensive language and culture courses designed to ensure complete proficiency in understanding and writing Spanish at an academic level. We guarantee that, by the end of our course, students will be capable of writing, reading, and expressing themselves effectively in Spanish. Our courses cover levels from A1 to B2.

To enroll at the university, international students must fulfill the minimum Spanish language requirement, which is set at the B2 level.

Our on-ground courses are taught by professors from the UPV who have extensive experience in the most modern and advanced language learning processes. You will expand your vocabulary through discussions on current affairs, study real-world subjects to make learning come alive, learn how to express your opinions and challenge the ideas of others, and master the skills needed to give presentations and write academic essays.
