Learning a new language can open up a world of new opportunities. With this in mind, we have developed a new model of language teaching that emphasizes a practical and flexible approach to language learning. We leverage technology and innovative pedagogical tools for a more engaging and effective learning experience.
Through our dynamic, interactive lessons, students are encouraged to apply grammar and vocabulary to real-life situations.
Our highly qualified language professors hail from diverse backgrounds and bring unique experiences to the classroom. They closely follow students’ progress through our exclusive language learning platforms.
The Language Center utilizes the latest technology in language learning to guarantee an individualized learning experience. Our specialized resources allow students to progress at their own pace according to their needs and understanding, while at the same time making learning interactive and hands-on.
Our goal is to guide students in the most effective approach to language acquisition, which includes applying core linguistic skills to a variety of topics, such as art, music, cinema, theater, politics, gastronomy, philosophy, literature, pop culture and sports. We also facilitate students’ exposure to natural contexts where they can expand on the skills acquired in class.
Students can attend weekly extracurricular activities that delve into the experiential aspects of language acquisition. These consist of guided city tours of Madrid and Segovia, conversation practice over coffee and cultural activities.
Here are some of the activities our students have participated in:
Languages have the power to open new doors and widen our perspectives. Learning a different language allows us to acquire new skills, explore different cultures and connect with people of diverse backgrounds. Building this open mindset is crucial both for the international community that makes up IE University and for the globalized world we live in.
We provide training in a variety of languages so that our students can personalize their academic paths to meet their future career plans and objectives. Our classes include:
For students who wish to polish their English writing skills, our team of Fulbright Scholarship English teaching assistants is here to help. Effective written communication skills are essential not only for excelling in university assignments but also for preparing cover letters, personal statements and CVs.
In addition to supporting students, the Language Center organizes English and Spanish courses for incoming IE University faculty members and staff. During their first year, full-time professors are offered lessons in Spanish to facilitate their transition to the country. Familiarity with the local language and culture helps our faculty integrate into the IE Community and settle into their new home.
