    Spanish Language and Culture Courses

     The Spanish language and culture courses of the University of La Rioja are aimed at students of all nationalities willing to learn Spanish or to improve their language level. Taught by qualified university teachers, it combines the systematic study of grammar and vocabulary and the practice of communication skills. 

    The Spanish courses are offered in several levels, according to the Common European Framework of reference of languages and are coupled with training on the different aspects of the Spanish culture.
    Students may choose to enroll in any modality of our courses (full academic year, term course, monthly ...).

    In all cases, the first day there will be a placement test to determine the language proficiency of the students and assign the group/level accordingly.

    At the end of the course, students who have successfully passed it will receive a diploma stating the attended subjects, the number of hours and the qualification obtained; the Diploma can be used as a transcript to get credits at their home University. Number of credits will depend on the home University.

    We also encourage students to obtain the SIELE Certificate (Servicio Internacional de Evaluación de la Lengua Española) from Instituto Cervantes which certifies electronically the command of the Spanish language proficiency.
    The University of La Rioja is an Authorized Examination Center for this certificate recognized by leader international organizations related to education and language world. More information
