The Cervantes Institute is a nonprofit organization that was founded in Spain in 1991 to promote the teaching of Spanish and to extend the cultures of Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries.
Today, with over 70 locations around the world, it is the largest organization devoted to carrying out this work.
Instituto Cervantes of Boston is located in the heart of Boston's academic community, on the Boston University Charles River campus, where we work very closely with the Departament of Romance Studies.
Instituto Cervantes Boston offers a wide selection of Spanish language instruction programs such as the Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE), the Spanish Virtual Classroom (AVE), and other training courses and initiatives for both students and teachers.
Working with the Departament of Romance Studies at BU as well as with other Government institutions such as the Spanish Resource Center run by the Ministry of Education of Spain, Boston´s Aula Cervantes serves as an antenna for the Cervantes Institute in Massachusetts and the New England area. Our mission is to assist and support all educational institutions in the region in the teaching and advancement of the Spanish language and hispanic cultures.
