International stay in a country of the studied languages

The Undergraduate Degree in Modern Languages is presented as an innovative alternative to the traditional approach on language teaching in the Spanish university. Innovation is provided by grouping in one single degree the study of three modern languages as foreign languages at different levels: in the A or major language (English or Spanish/FL*) the student will reach a level of knowledge similar to that of a native; an advanced knowledge in the B or minor language (Spanish/FL*, English, German or French) and an instrumental knowledge in the C language (German, French or Chinese).

The innovation of the Undergraduate Degree in Modern Languages by Nebrija University is provided by grouping in one single degree the study of three languages which are studied at different levels, to turn the student into the intercultural mediator in international organizations, business and teaching environments.

In addition, the program offers the possibility of a Language A - Spanish itinerary for international students.

The Nebrija Institute of Professional Skills works every day to achieve the differentiation of our students through the development of attitudes and skills.

The main objective is for students to achieve the best of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources through personal self-knowledge.

In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked on within the three seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication skills and negotiation, indispensable for our students to know how to transmit ideas, to argue them, to provide information and opinions in an adequate, clear and convincing way.

Within what will be their work performance, other aspects such as teamwork, conflict resolution and project management ability will be worked on.

In the third block, skills worked on are those aimed at increasing the student's employability. They will work with tools and techniques for job searching, and perform tasks that achieve in the student a greater use of their personal skills.

For all this we have currently active experts in selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training and professionals dedicated to the world of communication and the arts.

In this way, and in a complementary way to his/her specific training, we help the student create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which he/she will be immersed when he/she finishes his/her studies.
