Who are we?

The Spanish Language Center, CEPEX, part of the Faculty of Finance, Government and International Relations of Universidad Externado de Colombia, opens its doors to both foreigners resident in Colombia and foreigners who are planning to come to Colombia and wish to learn or perfect their Spanish proficiency through language or topic courses about Latin American culture.

Stressing the interrelatedness competency and broad cultural literacy, the courses are designed to provide non-native speakers essential tools to develop and improve their communicative skills in Spanish and also to promote better understanding of Latin American cultural heritage and the current context of Colombia.
