Spanish for speakers of other languages
As part of its commitment to the promotion of Spanish language and culture, the European University of the Atlantic began offering Spanish classes in the 2017-2018 academic year. The university welcomes a community of students from more than 40 countries and also maintains more than 100 agreements with universities and other institutions of higher education around the world. In this way, language teaching, including Spanish, stands as the backbone and cross-cutting element of all the faculties and degrees in the University.
The Language Center offers the following courses of Spanish for speakers of other languages:
- General Spanish courses - Extensive mode (60 hours)
- General Spanish courses - Intensive mode (80 hours)
- Specific DELE preparation course (16 hours)
- Specific Spanish for Business course (30 hours)
Our Spanish Department has the distinction of being an "Accredited Center by the Instituto Cervantes". A seal of quality granted by the Instituto Cervantes to those centers that have demonstrated they meet agreed quality standards on different areas of their activity related to the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language, as the academic programs and teaching staff, equipment and facilities, and marketing and communication.
The Universidad Europea del Atlántico (European University of the Atlantic), in its clear commitment to the teaching and learning of languages, offers its official degrees students the possibility of extending their training in foreign languages beyond the requirements of their curriculum, and thus achieve a level of specialization that allows them to opt for new and more qualified international work environments.
Students, while taking the courses required to complete their degree, can optionally and voluntarily select courses to initiate, develop, or perfect their level in French, German, or English. The following courses and levels are offered for this purpose:
COURSES AND LEVELS:
- English (from level B1 to C2)
- German (from level A1 to C1)
- French (from level A1 to C1)
ORGANIZATION AND METHODOLOGY
The courses are organized in four-month periods and comprise four hours of class per week. The groups are small and the classes are based on methodologies that allow the implementation of what has been learned from the first day:
- Follow a communicative and interactive methodology.
- Adapt to the learning needs of students.
- Are multicultural.
- Have an expert teaching staff in foreign language didactics.
- Are aligned with the CEFR.
- Work in a dynamic and integrated manner on content, competencies, and language skills.
In addition, in order to facilitate student learning and reinforce those areas of greatest difficulty, the University also offers the Language Support Service (SAPLI). This is a service designed and run by students of the university to offer activities aimed at practicing foreign languages, such as, for example, the organization of weekly language exchange tandems.
At the end of the course, the student receives an accreditation certificate from the University with the level obtained, and the extra training received is also reflected in their final grade certificate as well as in the European Diploma Supplement that students receive after paying the corresponding fees.
For more information on the cost of these courses, as well as the registration procedure, please contact the Academic Secretariat of the University or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Students who renew their graduate or master's degree enrollment from PANAL, and also wish to enroll in one of these language courses, should take advantage of the enrollment process in the degree and add the corresponding language in their enrollment program for the next academic year through the "Extra" option.
