University of Salamanca
Salamanca University, dating back to 1218, is the oldest and also one of the most prestigious universities in Spain. The university has more than 30,000 students per year, of which approximately 4,000 are foreign students. Apart from being the oldest university in Spain, it was also the first university in Spain to create Spanish language courses for foreign students, its first program dating back to 1929.
Since then the Spanish courses offered have evolved a great deal and today Salamanca University is able to offer a broad range of Spanish cultural and language courses to students from all over the world.
In conjunction with the University of Cambridge, the University of Salamanca co-founded the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) in 1989.
