Historical Overview

The Latin American Center, with more than 45 years' experience teaching Spanish to foreigners is an institution with one of the longest history in this field in Colombia and Latin America. The Center is a program of the Department of Languages, which belongs to the School of Communication and Language of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana.

The Spanish Program was created by the Latin American Center in the 1960's as part of the School of Social Sciences under the name of The Latin American Center for Human and Intercultural Relations. From the beginning, its main objective has been the teaching of Spanish to foreigners. During this time, the Spanish Program has come to be recognized as a pioneer in this field in Colombia and Latin America.

In 1993, the Latin American Center was placed under the supervision of the Department of Languages as part of a restructuring process in the University, since the activity of each unit is the same: teaching, learning, and the evaluation of foreign languages; moreover, they are based on the same discipline, Applied Linguistics.
