The various language courses favour the integrated education of students and the internationalization of the University, with Spanish courses for foreign students and language training programmes for teaching staff.
La Casa de las Lenguas imparts non-official instrumental language instruction at the University of Oviedo, providing support for its internationalization goals. Its offer includes courses in a dozen languages, as well as Spanish courses for foreign students and language training courses for lecturers. The languages are: Arabic, Asturian, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Spanish sign language.
There is also a broad range of language courses to suit the needs of university students and society in general. In addition to general language courses, the University of Oviedo has an attractive programme of Spanish courses for foreigners, which brings Asturias closer to nearly a thousand young people from different countries every year.
The intensive courses, aimed at both teaching and administrative staff at the university, as well as those provided to external institutions and workshops for mature students (PUMUO), reinforce the educational offer. In addition, La Casa de las Lenguas is an accredited examination centre for official tests in English (IELTS), French (DELF-DALF), German (Goethe Institute) and Italian (PLIDA).
