Published Bernice on Wednesday, October 31, 2018

FEDELE, the Spanish Federation of Spanish Schools, in collaboration with Turespaña, Salamanca City of Spanish and Junta de Castilla y León celebrates the IX Congress of Spanish Language Educational Centres (ECELE) which will take place in the city of Salamanca from the 25th until the 27th of November 2018.
The principal objective of this congress is to show the academic offer of Spanish as a Foreign Language Immersion Courses for teachers and people involved in the teaching of Spanish as Foreign Language.


ECELE has become an essential event for promoting the Teaching of Spanish as Foreign Language in Spain. The event will take an innovative format based on social networking, offering cultural, tourist and gastronomic activities that will allow participants to get to know the highlights of Spain’s cultural and linguistic immersion programmes while enjoying Salamanca’s iconic locations.
More than 40 representatives of Spanish Schools in Spain and 40 teachers and people involved in the teaching of Spanish as Foreign Language will be participating.


Teachers will also be able to take part during the forum and in the days following it, in the comprehensive cultural programme and one of the two familiarisation trips to Andalusia or the Comunidad Valencia.


FEDELE is the Spanish Federation of Schools of Spanish as a Foreign Language, and currently has 97 schools distributed throughout Spain. All FEDELE centres are accredited by the Instituto Cervantes for teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
There are up to 572 million Spanish-speakers in the world, and 21.2 million more study it as a foreign language. Language tourism, which generates more than 2,000 million euros annually, has a huge potential for growth. Globally, the use of Spanish is constantly on the increase. 7.8% of the world's population use the language, according to the Instituto Cervantes, and the total number of Spanish-speakers is predicted to increase, reaching 754 million by mid-century.


Around 200,000 of these students choose Spain as a destination for a stay involving cultural and linguistic immersion, with an average stay of almost three weeks and an expenditure of around 2,500 euros. Students choose Spain due to the teaching methods, teaching materials and teachers, as well as for the climate, cultural opportunities, value for money and lifestyle.
