This past January 2008, we here at Expanish developed a new Spanish course curriculum based on the Cervantes Institute guidelines, the largest organization in the world responsible for promoting the study and teaching of the Spanish language and culture, making Expanish one of the only schools in Buenos Aires to follow the prestigious Cervantes teaching method.
Named after the eminent Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes, the Cervantes Institute is a world-wide non-profit organization that aims at promoting the study and use of Spanish universally. Created by the Spanish government in 1991, there are currently over 55 institutes in over twenty countries that teach Spanish according to the Cervantes curriculum. This auspicious curriculum improves the methods of Spanish education by creating a social, cultural and educational environment, and by engaging in the discovery of Latin American and Spanish cultures.
The Cervantes Institute offers examinations for the Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE), the Spanish equivalent of the TOEFL exam, which is the only officially recognized certificate of fluency for non-native Spanish speakers. The institute proposes modules for different levels of Spanish speakers and it has proven itself to be successful in spreading the use of the Spanish language internationally.
Expanish is also a member of SEA (Association of Language Centers in Argentina) and one of the only Spanish language schools in Latin America to follow the accredited Spanish curriculum model of the Cervantes Institute. We are proud of these certifications and happy to ensure a very high-quality and satisfying study abroad experience in Buenos Aires!
