The Colegio de España is a Centre Accredited by the Instituto Cervantes and is part of its network of Associated Centres, composed by centres whose quality has been recognized by the institute. The Colegio also has the certificate of quality CEELE granted by the University of Alcalá de Henares.
Many universities from the United States and from Europe have established academic programs with the Colegio de España. Samewise, in collaboration with the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we have organized some recycling courses for Spanish teachers from Brazil and from the English-speaking Carribean. Teachers of Spanish in High-schools from all over the world have also taken these kind of courses at the Colegio, especially designed for them.
The Colegio has its own book house, Ambos Mundos, dedicated, among others, to the edition of books on Spanish as a Foreign Language (Los Verbos Españoles, Ser y Estar, Las Perífrasis Verbales, El Indicativo, Las Preposiciones en Español, etc.). Annually, the Colegio publishes the literary and cultural magazine Cuadernos del Lazarillo, in collaboration with well-known specialists, sold in libraries and universities.
The Colegio is a member of the FEDELE (Federación Española de Centros de Enseñanza de Español), and of the AEECYL (Asociación de Escuelas de Español de Castilla y Léon).
The Colegio collaborates closely with the cultural institution Alfonso X, El Sabio, which offers conferences (on history, art, literature, society and politics) which can be freely attended by our students.
