Cursos Internacionales de la Universidad de Salamanca, the Spanish Real Academia de Ingeniería and Lenkua
(education consultancy and management), three institutions with a great deal of prestige within their field,
have united their expertise in the development of a Spanish course for specific purposes, pioneering in the
teaching of Spanish as a foreign language.
"Technical Spanish" is a learning blended course of B1 level, that is specifically aimed at Engineering students whose mother tongue is not Spanish, engineers of different specialties, and architects and engineering-related professionals in these sectors that, more and more frequently, need a command of Spanish for work. The course consists of 125 hours of classes, 100 of which will be online and 25 will be face-to-face classes.

Through a dynamic, innovative and cooperative approach, the course wants students to perform well in everyday situations in their present and future professional life. Due to the increasing influence of Spanish engineering in the world and the growing strength of our language, they will need to communicate in Spanish.
"Technical Spanish" is organized into six modules plus an introductory
module 0, in which students will become familiar with technical and
Classes will be held in Cursos Internacionales de la Universidad de Salamanca
throughout the week. It consists of two parts: 8 hours of review sessions and 17 contact hours in which teachers from the Spanish Real Academia de Ingeniería will conduct activities, tasks and projects based on the subject matter of each module.
