About Us

The Language Institute is a department of the University of Montemorelos that was established to serve the community and to prepare, under the Adventist worldview, national, and international students for the mission field, providing them with the necessary tools to learn a second language, its history, and its culture. We offer English, French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic and Mexican Sign Language.

The Spanish program takes one year (two semesters and a summer) and it is designed in eight levels of five-week each. It focuses on the development of four basic skills: verbal interaction, listening comprehension, written interaction, and reading comprehension. The mastery of the four skills will allow the students to function efficiently in the different areas in which they will conduct. At the end of the Spanish course, a DELE-type exam is applied to prove that the candidate has mastered the four skills at the B2 level required to enter the university or postgraduate program of his/her choice.

Certifications

The Language Institute of the University of Montemorelos is an authorized center for the application of certification exams by Cambridge English Exams. We are affiliated with The Anglo International Exams Center. The certifications offered are CPE, CAE, TKT in all its modules, YLE and CLIL; Certification exams are generally applied on Fridays.
