Many foreign students want to start learning or improve their Spanish skills. Most public and private Spanish universities have their own language centres, and offer students the opportunity to improve their linguistic skills in a number of languages, including Spanish itself and its corresponding dialects. Through the UPCT you will get the chance to learn at the language department of the UPCT or at the Cervantes Institute. Levels A1, A2, B1.1 can be taken for free at faculties. If you don’t know any Spanish at all, you can take an oral test to assess your level.
In case you have a higher level than B1.1, you can receive Spanish classes at Funcarele, an official center of the Cervantes Institute. Intensive courses, long term courses, individual classes, DELE preparation classes or lessons via Skype are offered at the Funcarele center. Classes in groups usually cost around 100 euro per month, but Erasmus students receive a discount of 20%.
If you are interested in studying other languages, like English, French, Italian or Chinese, you can do so in Cartagena.
We are only 5 people in class. It makes it easy to stay focused. For the teacher, it is also an advantage, since she can pay special attention to every one of her students. I really appreciate this, because it helps you a lot to stay on track with your studies.
