The program of Spanish as a Foreign Language (ELE – acronym in Spanish) of the Universidad de los Andes seeks to provide students with the development and strengthening of their communicative skills while at the same time involving them in a critical reflection of the social and cultural practices of a multilingual and multicultural country as Colombia. Our program offers various modes of study such as: semester, summer, intensive and special courses for groups. The program is based on the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages: Learning, Teaching and Assessment.
