The program of Spanish as a Foreign Language (ELE – acronym in Spanish) of the Universidad de los Andes, carried out in conjunction with the Department of Languages and Sociocultural Studies, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Spanish Center, 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 private courses for groups and business people. Students can also participate, in accordance with their level of Spanish, in the courses offered by the University on a variety of academic subjects. The program is based on the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages: Learning, Teaching and Assessment.
