Spanish teacher training courses
Introductory (pre-service) courses
These courses are designed for fluent Spanish speakers (either native or non-native) who would like to learn how to teach Spanish to foreigners.
We offer these courses on both an intensive and an extensive (part-time) basis. The intensive courses last 4 weeks, the extensive courses 12 weeks. Both course formats provide 120 hours of class and cover both theoretical and practical aspects of teaching.
Those students who hold a university degree, have a suitably high level of Spanish (native or near-native speaker level) and who successfully complete of these courses, receive an officially recognised teaching certificate from the University of Barcelona, Spain. This certificate is also equivalent to 6 credits on the University of Barcelona's Masters course in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
