The demand for Spanish has increased significantly, due in part to including foreign languages as a competence area in the general career preparation (ABV) of a bachelor's degree. The courses offered by the Instituto Cervantes are based on the skill objectives of the basic ABV modules for Spanish. The fees will be covered by Freie Universität Berlin.
The framework agreement is one aspect of the internationalization strategy of Freie Universität Berlin. As part of the implementation of this strategy, the university is seeking closer cooperation with cultural institutes and embassies in Berlin.
The Instituto Cervantes of Spain was founded in 1991 with the aim of promoting the Spanish language and disseminating the cultures of Spain and all the Latin American countries. The non-profit, public foundation is represented worldwide with 70 institutions in more than 40 countries. In Germany there are branches of the Instituto Cervantes in Berlin, Bremen, Hamburg, Frankfurt, and Munich.
