Curriculum and types of course

The Spanish courses at the FZHB are offered in collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes, Schwachhauser Ring 124, Bremen. Students can visit a wide variety of interesting cultural events, use the library with over 14,000 documents, and the independent language learning centre with PC workstations and Internet access.
The teaching focuses on helping students to acquire communicative and intercultural competences.
The courses are generally held at the University of Bremen, the Hochschule Bremen, Hochschule Bremerhaven and also at the Instituto Cervantes itself.

The Instituto Cervantes offers students the opportunity to take courses in Spanish from absolute beginner to advanced level (Levels A1 to C1 CEFR). It offers courses for specific purposes, interdisciplinary courses, intensive courses in the semester break, online courses (page available only in German at present) and courses where the emphasis is on conversation, cultural studies, Spanish for professional purposes, to prepare for a stay in a Spanish-speaking country, and to acquire intercultural competences.
Furthermore, all certificate courses and the special DELE courses prepare students for the DELE/Spanish as a foreign language examinations. Further information can be found in the table below and by clicking the following link: DELE tests (page available only in German at present).
