The “Formación de Profesores de Español como Lengua Extranjera (FPELE)” (Training for professors of Spanish as a foreign language) is a course directed towards individuals without teaching experience; its principal characteristic is the communicative approach, which makes classes practical, functional and suited to the real needs of Spanish language students.
The FPELE course is divided into theoretical sessions (methodology and language analysis), lesson planning and class preparation, and teaching practice.
