ABOUT

The Modern Languages Centre (CLM) is one of the leading institutions in Spain for language learning. Teaching staff are highly qualified, the administrative team is dedicated and effective, and the Centre boasts a wide range of services, a wealth of learning resources and endless extracurricular activities.

CLM offers general and intensive Spanish language courses for international students and staff at all levels (A1-C2); language and culture courses; and Hispanic studies courses.

It employs a thoroughly communicative approach, ensuring students can learn and practice languages in real-life situations. Native Spanish students and international students can also interact via a language exchange service. This exchange service allows you to practice the language you are learning with a native speaker outside class time, reinforcing the knowledge and language skills acquired in the classroom.

SERVICES OFFERED

Housing: CLM has its own Accommodation Service which is open to all students enrolled at the Center. Students can choose the type of accommodation which best suits them from a wide range of possibilities (hotels and hostels, living in a family, student residences, apartments, flats and rooms in shared houses).

[Budget Study Abroad note: Shared student apartments are the most affordable housing option when studying abroad in Spain. Choosing a  shared student apartment can save you around $500 per month compared to a homestay, reducing the cost of your study abroad program (though you still have to buy your own food).  The University of Granada referenced Aluni as a site to find a student apartment if you are planning on studying abroad or learning Spanish in Granada.]
