General information

Our intention is for students to have the opportunity to get to know their area of choice in depth. At the same time participants will get to know young people from all parts of Spain and from other countries and will experience all that Valladolid has to offer from the cultural and social points of view.

The Summer Institute will take place from June 28 to July 12, in the mornings. Each area of study offers many additional activities in the afternoons and at the weekend to make the most of our Region.

Lessons will take place in the premises of the Colegio Castilla y León, in single rooms. The Fundación offers participants a cultural and tourist information service to make the most of their stay.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information. We look forward to welcoming you at the Institute this summer.

Summer Institute

The teaching of a second language can not be dissociated from the culture it belongs to. It is therefore important for foreign teachers of Spanish to have first hand knowledge of the Spanish culture and of the current and changing situation of the country.

The program of this course aims to achieve this target. This is why we offer advanced language lessons together with sessions led by experts on a wide range of fields: art, governmental institutions, the media, religion in today's Spain, contemporary literature, architecture and changes in the Spanish society. The course will also offer an analysis of the most important events in Spanish history, as well as discussing techniques of interpersonal communication. Sessions will be led by experts, University professors and members of the pedagogic team of the Fundación de la Lengua Española.

We offer a combination of intensive classes led by specialized professors, field visits, recreational and social activities, excursions to places of interest and attendance to the best shows of the Summer season in Valladolid and surroundings.
