Specialized in teaching Spanish as a foreign language

Spanish Courses Unamuno was founded in 1987, being one of the first schools of Spanish for foreigners in Salamanca.

We are a center in charge of the dissemination of Spanish culture and civilization. In Spanish Courses Unamuno believe that learning Spanish does not end in the classroom, so we offer programs with courses and cultural activities for the students to learn and live the Spanish culture.

Our Students

Spanish Courses Unamuno receives an average of 1,500 students per year. The average number of students who usually attend the school is approximately 70, but this number usually varies depending on the months, with the highest attendance being those between March and July.

The class composition is varied, because we have pupils aged between 15 and 65 years, and coming almost from all over the world throughout the year, especially from Europe: Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Portugal, Russia … and from America: Brazil, United States, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

The languages of student services at the center are: Spanish, English, French, German and Italian.

Accredited Centre

In 1997, Spanish Courses Unamuno received 97 out of 100 possible points in accreditation by the University of Alcala, Madrid. This rating made the Colegio Unamuno the first school of Salamanca to meet the requirements to achieve CEELE certification (Quality in the Education of Spanish as Foreign Language).

In 2008 Spanish Courses Unamuno obtained accreditation from the Instituto Cervantes which means it meets the conditions set by the Instituto Cervantes Accreditation System for Centres, the only international accreditation exclusively focused on the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
