Information Office for Students of Spanish opening soon in Salamanca

by Stacey

The new Office of Information geared towards students of Spanish in Salamanca will begin to provide its services this year in Salamanca's Plaza Mayor, as soon as the permit paperwork gets approved in 2 months. It will be "the first municipal office of that specific character in all of Spain".

Until recently, other offices providing similar services to international students exist in other cities, but they're wholly dependable of the universities and are geared particularly towards students of exchange programs and those going through academic mobility.

However, this new center of information which will be located in the Casa de Postas just above the Municipal Tourist Office in Plaza Mayor, will provide foreigners who study Spanish in Salamanca (either in the universities, in language schools or private centers), with useful information about the city as well as administrative advice.

The new office will comprise of personnel knowledgeable in several languages who will attend to the doubts of all the students who approach the office, provide them with updated maps and any other specific information.

Foreign students of Spanish will find in this office information regarding the location of municipal and private buildings, hospitals, police stations, libraries, sports complexes, as well as any other place of interest, including a list of monthly cultural programs going on in Salamanca.

The aim of this office is to reinforce the slogan adopted by Salamanca: Ciudad del Español (City of Spanish) and will do anything possible to make its students' stay as comfortable and informative as possible. Read a previous post on Salamanca becoming the Ciudad del Español.
