ABSTRACT

Córdoba is the third most populous city in the largest autonomous community in Spain, Andalusia. This city had a huge importance in ancient times as a prominent town in the Roman Empire age and as the capital of the Caliphate of Córdoba in Muslim times. It is known that Córdoba had a population of around one million inhabitants in the 10th century, which made it the largest city in the world at that time.

The city is full of archaeological remains of the three main cultures of antiquity: the Muslim, the Jewish and the Christian, who for centuries coexisted in this city. The Jewish Quarter, the Mosque (today the city’s cathedral) or the beautiful corners and squares, such as the Cristo de Los Faroles, are architectural manifestations that the three cultures.

The historic centre of Córdoba was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994.

UCOidiomas is the Official Language Center of the University of Córdoba. Both members of the university and students from outside the university can sign on to the courses of Spanish to foreigners. This Language Center sets complementary activities that help the student capture the identity of the Spanish city and culture. In addition, they offer the possibility of staying in Córdoba with one of the Spanish families that have been carefully selected for immersion purposes.

Apart from the university’s academic offer, there is a private centre with a Spanish section accredited by the Cervantes Institute. It is the Academia Hispánica School, owned by the International House business group.
