COURSES IN SPANISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE AT THE
UNIVERSITY OF ZARAGOZA (SPAIN
)

SUMMER COURSES IN JACA
83nd EDITION

(JULY AND AUGUST 2013)


Courses in Spanish as a Foreign Language at the University of Zaragoza are run throughout the year in Zaragoza (the capital city of Aragon) while in the summer they are transferred to the tourist resort of Jaca (Huesca) in the Pyrenees, less than two hours away.

The University of Zaragoza has been a pioneer in teaching Spanish to foreign students since 1927. It has agreements with a number of public and private institutions around the world, working directly with various official bodies to promote the Spanish language (the Cervantes Institute, the Education Office of a number of Spanish embassies, the Aragon Regional Government and the Ministry of Education and Science) and it is the Official Examination Centre for the Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera - DELE) with exams in May and November.

The University of Zaragoza is recognised worldwide, as is demonstrated by the high number of foreign students attending the various co-operation programmes in which it participates (Sócrates-Erasmus, Tempus, ALPA, Asia-Link, Leonardo, etc).

The city of Jaca, some 850 metres above sea level, was the capital of the old kingdom of Aragon and is today a leading tourist resort in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees, offering a wide range of cultural events and services, including concerts, flea markets, exhibitions, conferences and congresses.

Its natural setting and facilities are ideal for many sports, including parasailing, horse riding, ice skating, adventure sports, rambling, etc.

The city has always been, and still is today, a favoured way stage for pilgrims on the Road to Santiago de Compostela and a focus for exchange and understanding between cultures, standing as a gateway to Europe just a few short kilometres from the French border.

Together with the Spanish Courses for Foreign Students, Spanish Teacher Training Courses are also offered. Spanish-speaking students participate in these courses allowing Spanish and Foreign students the opportunity to spend time together and practise their language skills.
