The main aim of the Master's Degree in Spanish as a Foreign Language is to train students to teach Spanish to speakers of other languages. It provides students with the theory and practical tools they need to teach Spanish as a foreign language at home or abroad. The programme guarantees that students will have a thorough knowledge of Spanish and will be familiar with the most suitable techniques and methods for satisfactory teaching.
