Master's degree in Teaching languages: Spanish as a Foreign Language

The main aim of the Master's Degree in Spanish as a Foreign Language is to train students to teach Spanish to speakers of other languages. It provides students with the theory and practical tools they need to teach Spanish as a foreign language at home or abroad. The programme guarantees that students will have a thorough knowledge of Spanish and will be familiar with the most suitable techniques and methods for satisfactory teaching.
The subjects are taught entirely in Spanish, as is the training programme, but this may not be the case of the optional subjects.

In addition to the professional track, the course also offers a research track for those who are interested in pursuing any theoretical or practical aspects of foreign language teaching with a view to taking a doctorate.
