The Instituto Cervantes is the institution created by Spain in 1991. Since then, it has worked to spread Spanish – it is the largest institution in the world dedicated to teaching Spanish- and to foster the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. The headquarters of the institution are in Madrid.

The Instituto Cervantes is present in very many countries in all continents, with more than 70 centres. The one in Sydney was inaugurated by Their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain, together with the Australian Authorities on June 25th, 2009.

Our institution is in charge of:

Organizing the exams for the Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE), as well as to issue official certificates and diplomas for those who attend our courses.
Organizing Spanish courses.
Organizing training courses for teachers of Spanish.
Supporting Hispanists in their activities.
Promoting cultural activities in collaboration with other organizations .
The work of the Instituto Cervantes is directed by representatives from the worlds of academia, culture and literature from Spain and Latin America. In Australia we work closely with local museums, galleries, theatres, publishers and universities as well as with Spanish and Latin American organizations.
