The Cervantes Institute is a nonprofit organization that was founded in Spain in 1991 to promote the teaching of Spanish and extend the cultures of Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries. Today, with over 70 locations around the world, is the largest organization devoted to carrying out this work.
The Aula Cervantes of Seattle is located in the heart of the University of Washington campus. It offers a wide selection of Spanish language instruction programs as preparation for the Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE) Examinations. In addition, the Seattle Aula Cervantes offers Spanish Virtual Classroom (AVE) courses and other training courses for both students and teachers.
Working with the University of Washington Department of Spanish and Portuguese as well as with other Government institutions such as the Center for Spanish Studies, under the Ministry of Education of Spain, Seattle’s Aula Cervantes serves as an antenna for the Cervantes Institutes in Washington and Oregon. Our mission is to assist and support all educational institutions in the use of our learning tools.
