Spanish language and culture studies

The Centre for Multilingual Academic Communication offers Spanish courses for you to learn Spanish and to gain insight on the Spanish and Latin American cultures.

You can study Spanish from beginners' leven to more advanced and academic courses under the guidance of native teachers. The already acquired Spanish language skills can be gained through basic academic courses. Also, there are courses about Latin American history, politics, society, economics, media and literature.


 After learning Spanish you have the opportunity to communicate with over 500 million people. Spanish is the world's third most spoken language and official language in 21 countries. It is also one of the official languages of the EU and is widely used, for example, in the business world.


Registration for the courses takes place in SISU.
