Program Overview

Local Director, Lorena Rodríguez Álvare
Lorena teaches Spanish-as-a-Second-Language at the University of Oviedo. Her teaching experience includes Calvin College in the US as well as the Institut Cervantès and the Alliance française in Gijón. Holding a second-level Master’s degree in Spanish Philology from the University of Oviedo, Lorena is pursuing doctoral research in linguistics and second-language acquisition, with a focus on vocabulary acquisition.

The University of Oviedo’s lovely Gijón campus, set at the edge of the city, a ten-minute bus ride from downtown, is home to IFE’s Asturias Center.

Students are housed with Spanish-speaking host families, located in safe and lively neighborhoods within the city limits of Gijón.
