The Semana del Español (Spanish Week) is open to the participation of non-federated centres which will be able to take part in dozens of activities. These centres, upon registration and payment, can participate in all or certain activities of the event, such as, for example, the ELE teacher training or the FEDELE Workshop. In this way, the Federation opens its doors to the participation of all professionals in the sector of teaching Spanish as a foreign language in our country, in an express support of the federative entity to the return to normality after the COVID-19 crisis experienced by the sector.

This category includes non-federated centres located in Spanish territory. If you are a non-federated centre located outside Spain, you must go to the “Agencies and international centres” category. To know all the details about the participation of the non-federated ELE centres you can download the following rules:

Physical Attendance at the Semana del Español

The non-federated centres have the possibility of attending exclusively to the training activities of the event or to include in their participation the Workshop with international agencies and/or teachers.

Only one representative per school is allowed to participate in Spanish Week.

All registrations for Spanish Week will include digital participation, which is included in the price.

Virtual assistance for non-federated centres

All non-federated centres can make as many digital registrations as they wish. Each digital user will receive a certificate for attending the event and will be able to participate in all the activities on the platform, which will be open from 1 July to 31 December.

Meeting with ELE students "La Fiesta del Español" and Gala "Festival del Español en España" - 22nd October

For the first time, the Federation is organising an activity dedicated specifically to ELE students in our country: a party with concerts and different recreational activities in which students can get to know each other and celebrate our language.

The Gala “Festival of Spanish in Spain” aims to be the launch of the sector in our country, with an awards ceremony for a series of categories and enlivened with live concerts, theatre performances and many other surprises.

All non-federated centres have the opportunity to present their candidatures for the different award categories which will be announced in September.


Cultural agenda during the Semana del Español

FEDELE will organise a series of cultural activities in the city of Madrid which can be attended by all federated centres upon registration (depending on the capacity of the venues), once registration has been completed.

The non-federated centre can take advantage of these spaces to get to know the participants better: the agencies and the international centres. They are suitable spaces to establish personal and professional links.
