Courses The School for Foreign Students, during Spring and Autumn terms, offers a two-weeks course called Spanish Express Contact for those students that need an intensive course before starting the semester. During each semester the school offers six language courses, applied language courses and content courses. During the semester, Spanish levels are divided into two modules of 50 hours each.

Some content courses are offered in English for those students that still don’t master the language but are interested in them. In Summer, there are six language levels offered with their six workshops and content courses that last for six weeks. Our courses are available for everyone during all the academic terms.
