· Spanish language courses in the Palace of Santa Cruz
The University Modern Language Centre is located in the district of the Realejo. It is housed in the old palace of Santa Cruz (16th century) which has been specially restored for teaching purposes. Since restoration was completed in 1992, the Centro de Lenguas Modernas offers Spanish courses for foreigners, Spanish language and culture courses and a variety of modern language courses (English, French, Italian, German, Catalan, Arabic, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Swedish).
· Practice your Spanish outside the classroom
It is the combination of the two that make the centre such an original venture; here foreign students can share their daily lives with those of Spanish students, thus stimulating a mutual interest in their different languages and cultures. This contact is strengthened through a language exchange service, which gives students the opportunity to practice their Spanish outside the classroom, and by cultural visits and activities.
· Official exams and Spanish for specific purposes
In addition to the aforementioned courses, the Centro de Lenguas Modernas also offers courses in Teaching Spanish as a foreign language and exams for those who wish to certify their level of Spanish (D.E.L.E. – Diploma in Spanish as a Foreign language – organised by the Instituto Cervantes). Business Spanish and other types of language courses for specific purposes, including those specially designed in conjunction with different academic and professional institutions are also available.
· We do our best to make the students’ stay as pleasant as possible
The language exchange service, the accommodation service, and organisation of cultural and sports activities are just a few examples.
On the academic side, the highly qualified teaching staff are specialised in language teaching, and include University of Granada professors and lecturers. The Centre is fully equipped with a library, the most up-to-date audio-visual aids both in classrooms and in language laboratories set up for multimedia and audio-video activities.
