Courses in Spanish as a Foreign Language (CELE)

ESPAÑOL GENERAL

El Curso de Español como Lengua Extranjera (CELE) es un programa a tiempo parcial de carácter cuatrimestral especialmente recomendado para los alumnos de movilidad internacional y, en general, para cualquier otro estudiante que busque poder compaginar el aprendizaje de español con otras actividades de tipo académico o laboral.
