Only-Digital Partipant

The Semana del Español (Spanish Week) offers a completely digital mode for those ELE professionals, teachers and non-teachers, who wish to attend the activity but are unable to do so in person. Thanks to the hybrid sessions that will take place during the days of celebration in Madrid or the number of activities that will be held beforehand on the digital platform, all participants will be able to train and have an unique contact with Spanish in Spain.

About the Platform

The platform where the Semana del Español is hosted will be available from 1 July to 31 December, with new and exclusive functionalities. All participants attending the event will have access to the platform included in their ticket.
