Spanish as a Foreign Language

For over 20 years, the School of Languages has been offering Spanish language courses for foreigners whose mother tongue is other than Spanish.

The courses have four levels (basic, pre-intermediate, intermediate and advanced), and they are aimed at developing communicative competence and social interaction abilities by perfecting the four basic skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. These courses also tackle aspects of Argentine and Latin American culture, history and society. Our School is staffed by professors with a wide experience, all of them with undergraduate degrees in Spanish, Spanish Language and Literature, or Modern Literature, or with a master's degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
