Comillas Foundation and the University of Miami sign an agreement to promote Spanish in the United States.

In order to establish relations and cooperation, the Comillas Foundation has signed an understanding with the University of Miami to strengthen a cooperation agreement between both institutions.

After an initial meeting in Miami in December 2008, the Program Director in the American University, Eduardo Negueruela, traveled to Comillas, Spain, in June to meet personally with Ignacio Rodriguez del Bosque, Director General of the Comillas Foundation.

The purpose of the agreement between the two institutions is to promote the development of training programs related to teaching and learning in the Spanish language in order to apply it in the economic, cultural and social fields.

Consequently, the University of Miami will send students to the Foundation with the aim of completing their training program in the Spanish language.

To foster this relationship, the Foundation will provide favorable conditions for teachers and students of the university to study in their headquarters in Comillas.

The staff of the University of Miami will improve their knowledge of both language and techniques in teaching Spanish through participation in specific courses tailored to this group, as well as a Master in Education of Spanish as a foreign language, organized by the Foundation in collaboration with the University of Cantabria.
