The Spanish as a Foreign Language (SFL) Program of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Cali aims to design, coordinate and carry out educational strategies to strengthen the teaching and learning processes of Spanish with non-Spanish speakers interested in learning the language, understanding and living the Colombian culture.

The SFL Program is based on the Communicative Approach that raises a form of teaching in which priority is given to the oral-written interaction adapted to the needs of the students.

The acquisition of SFL based on tasks is incorporated into the process aimed to promote learning through the real use of language in and out of the classroom. Learning processes necessarily include communication and experience in the Colombian culture.
