El Centro is a Spanish language center that provides opportunities for Elon University students, faculty and staff to learn conversational Spanish through immersion, interaction and community service.
Your time at El Centro will truly be an experience. Learning a new language is more than just textbooks and exams. Through our cultural events, conversational classes and community service in the surrounding area, we offer students a unique way of learning the Spanish language and culture. We believe that the best way to learn Spanish is by becoming immersed, and when you walk through the doors of El Centro that is exactly what happens.
El Centro also provides one of the most unique experiences at Elon. Through El Centro, you can get up to $650 towards a plane ticket to the Spanish-speaking country of your choice! Visit the “travel” section to find out how.
Costa Rica, Spain, United States, Panama, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, Bolivia, Honduras, Argentina... Our diverse staff of teachers and students comes from all across the world and they each bring with them their own particular story.
El Centro welcomes everyone and anyone who wants to learn about Hispanic culture. So if you just want to take a few cooking classes or you have the desire to completely master the language, El Centro will provide you with an experience unlike any other.
