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.

Refresher course for non-native Spanish teachers

This 40-hour, two-week course is designed for practising teachers of Spanish working in a non-Spanish speaking country who want to update their skills and knowledge in recent trends in methodology (such as the use of technology in the classroom), and refresh their knowledge of current Spanish usage and Latin-American culture.
