Your New School
The Center for Linguistic & Multicultural Studies was founded in 1980. Its mission was the teaching of the
Spanish language and Mexican culture exclusively to foreign students. We believe that intensive study in
small group is best for Spanish language instruction therefore since its inception, UNINTER was used the
“Group 5 System” At UNINTER it is of the utmost importance to group students according to their ability in
order to master the language.
How Big is Uninter?
The student body of Universidad Internacional consists of Mexican and
international students, receives more than 1800 Mexican students
and more than 3000 international students yearly. Every day, they
have the opportunity to share a multicultural environment where
the Spanish language is the main tool for communication. We can
proudly say that our university has become in a very short period
of time the most important institution in the teaching of the Spanish
language in Mexico.

Who recommends us?
MaryAnn Blitt, Foreign Language Coordinator,
MCC-Mapple Woods, Kansas City, MO
“I have been taking students abroad for the last ten years, and have
to say that Universidad Internacional has a top-notch program. They
provide all of the services that I could ask for as a program director, and
the classes, cultural activities and student support are exceptional.”
Tom Cranson, Residente Director, of Phoenix Group.
“My ten year involvement with bringing students to Univerisdad
Internacional has resulted in making many friends among the directors,
teachers, and staff who have been a pleasure bringing students who
are always made to feel comfortable and whose educational needs
are always met. The flexibility with which the curriculum schedules,
excursion, directors and teachers operate insures that all students
leave here with a profund knowledge of Spanish and Mexican culture
and the desire to return and experience again, the warm culture of
both the school and Cuernavaca.”
