Salamanca, Ciudad del Español

Known as the City of Spanish language, Salamanca is a universal reference throughout the world when talking about Spanish learning. With its 800 years of academic tradition, the teaching of Spanish constitutes from the beginning, one of its fundamental specialties. This is shown, not only by the number of foreigners that come to Salamanca to learn the language or to perfect it, but also by the great deal of congresses and international meetings about teaching and the study of Spanish that are held in the city. It is located in the region of Castilla, the cradle of the original Spanish language. And as result of it, and as a result of its old academic tradition, the most correct and purest Spanish is spoken in its streets, by the salmantinos.

To say that you have learned or perfected your Spanish with a Spanish school of Salamanca is like saying you have learned or perfected your English in Oxford or Cambridge: it is a mark of quality Spanish.

But, what is Salamanca like? Salamanca is a small city (170.000 people) situated in the west of Spain, 200 kilometres from Madrid. Small in size, big in fame and prestige. In 2002, the city successfully hosted the "European City of Culture" and has been honoured a "UNESCO World Heritage City" for its rich arts. Its University, located in the heart of the historical city, is the longest university in Spain and the fourth longest in Europe.

The beauty of the city and its surroundings, as well as its university atmosphere, attract students every year from all over the world. This charming and vibrant location offers students the opportunity to study in a multicultural campus amid a wealth of history and culture.

Salamanca offers a cultural array befitting of its prestigious reputation. Every day there are concerts, plays and film festivals of interest to the visitor, not to mention museums and exhibitions packed with heritage from the middle ages until the 20th century, from the Cathedral Museum to the Centro de Arte de Salamanca, representing the history of Spanish culture and art.

The most interesting sights of Salamanca are its streets. Small and accessible the visitor can walk through these streets while contemplating the precious architecture in every corner. The splendor of the Spanish Renaissance has been conserved in Salamanca like no other place, and there are unique examples of baroque architecture such as the Plaza Mayor which is one of the most beautiful squares in the world.

All this provides the background for student life infusing the city with its youthful spirit that characterizes the city. A place that really welcomes all who come. And due to its small size, its safety, its wonderful quality of life, and its university atmosphere, it is the ideal to study Spanish abroad.
