The objective is to raise awareness among European Institutions of Higher Education about the courses and full immersion programs offered in Spanish schools for foreigners in Spain.
The first day will be a general presentation, in collaboration with Instituto Cervantes, of the network of accredited Spanish institutions in Spain and the guarantees they offer. The event will open with a reception at city hall followed by a workshop in which each guest will present their experiences. Additionally, they will take a tour of Spanish schools in the city of Salamanca. On the second day the representatives of the Spanish schools will have meetings with the heads of the participating European institutions.
Julio Lopez, Councilor of Tourism, stated that the "priority is to reach out to teachers" because, according to market research focus groups, students claim that their teachers' recommendation directly influences their choice of where to study Spanish.
Participants include schools from Germany, England, France, Ireland and Portugal for the convention which will take place on the 25th and 26th of November. The event will open with a reception at city hall followed by a workshop in which each guest will present their experiences.
The don Quijote school in Salamanca will remain open for the event.
