The Center for Studies and Certification of Foreign Languages is dedicated to the education of foreign languages and cultures in order to promote a peaceful global communication and the internationalization of UANL. Our Center provides on-site and online pedagogical support and organizes cultural activities for practicing foreign languages. Furthermore, it preserves and increases its repertory of printed and digital resources to enable a constant contact between students and environments of authentic experiences in the languages we instruct.
