This university is located in Granada, Spain. To learn more about this city and country, please visit:
The University of Granada Modern Language Centre, Centro de Lenguas Modernas (CLM) is housed in the old palace of Santa Cruz (16th century) which has been specially restored for teaching purposes. Since restoration was completed in 1992, the new Centro de Lenguas Modernas offers not only its now renowned Spanish Courses for Foreigners- Hispanic Studies Course (CEH), Studies in Spanish Language and Culture Course (CLCE), and Intensive Spanish Language Courses (CILE), but also a variety of Modern Language Courses (English, French, Italian, German, Catalan, Arabic, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Swedish). It is the combination of the two that makes the centre such an original venture; here foreign students can share their daily lives with those of Spanish students, thus stimulating a mutual interest in their different languages and cultures. This contact is strengthened through a language exchange service, which gives students the opportunity to practice their Spanish outside the classroom, and by cultural visits and activities.
