If you are an international student coming to Granada to study at the University of Granada (UGR) you may want to brush up your Spanish. If your level of Spanish is not high enough to start your studies, or you want to refresh before starting your study then you may want to consider taking a Spanish course at the Granada University.
At Linguaschools Granada we offer Spanish courses to bring your Spanish to the right level to start your university studies. We even offer University Pathway courses preparing non EU students for the EBAU university access exam and help them to apply to the University of Granada.
Even so, you may be interested in studying Spanish at the University of Granada, just because it sounds like a good experience and taking a Spanish course at the UGR may look better on your CV than taking a similar course at a private Spanish language school.
In this article we will explain how the Spanish courses at the UGR work, compare them to Linguaschools Granada’s Spanish courses and explain how you can sign up for the Spanish course at the UGR.
The University of Granada (UGR)
The Granada University has a special department dedicated to language learning, called the Modern Languages Centre (Centro de Lenguas Modernas, or CLM).
Centro de Lenguas Modernas
The CLM has a very good reputation and offers general and intensive Spanish language courses for students and staff at all levels (A1-C2); language and culture courses; and Hispanic studies courses. Apart from this, it offers courses in the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Swedish, Romanian, Russian, Arabic, Persian, Polish and Czech.
The CLM is accredited by the Instituto Cervantes, which guarantees the highest quality of courses. It is located in the Realejo area, close by the Alhambra (https://g.page/clmGranada?share).
20h per week Spanish course
One of the most popular courses is the 20h per week Intensive Spanish Language Courses (CILE), comparable to our intensive 20 course. You have 4 lessons per day, Monday to Friday from 9h to 13h. The courses start every month. The most common is 1 to 4 weeks, but you can also stay longer on request.
