La Casa de las Lenguas offers close to a hundred courses in different languages: German, Arab, Chinese, French, English, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Bable and Spanish sign language. The courses may be taught by one or several lecturers, all specialists, in each of the languages. Students must be 17 years of age to enrol.

The language learning offered by the University of Oviedo is spread over all the university campuses, in addition to Avilés. Courses typically have a 90-hour duration. Each group, with a maximum of 20 students, meets twice a week for 85 minutes (Monday and Wednesday / Tuesday and Thursday).

At the end of the course, those participants who have attended at least 85% of the classes and pass the final exam will obtain a Certificate of Progress. On request, the remaining students will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Regular, non-university level teachers will be eligible to receive recognition for 5 Credits in Lifelong Learning as long as they are working at a centre that is supported with funds from the Principality of Asturias and that they have received the previously mentioned Certificate of Progress when requested by the participant.
