ABOUT

The Spanish courses for foreigners at the University of Valladolid have been taught continuously for more than 65 years. Nowadays, Spanish lessons take place at the University Language Center, located on the Miguel campus, in a safe an easily accessible area providing an ideal setting for learning and practicing Spanish.
