The University Language Center, in line with the vision of the National University Federico Villarreal, oriented towards academic excellence; It works with a community of renowned language teachers and native teachers, with modern technology and new teaching methods. Students are trained in the knowledge and practice of foreign and native languages according to the demands of the globalization process, which allow them to be inserted in the main world knowledge networks.
Mission and vision
“Promote the learning and mastery of foreign and native languages throughout the Villarrealina community and the general public, certifying the knowledge of languages with principles of efficiency, competitiveness and values”
“Ser una institución de prestigio, líder en la enseñanza de idiomas, caracterizada por su excelencia académica y su eficiente gestión administrativa al servicio de la educación multilingüe en el Perú.”
The CUDI – UNFV considers a methodological approach in which language rather than a system of habits that can be formed through mechanical exercise (audiolingual approach) is first and foremost a linguistic interaction between human beings and historical, social and cultural contexts, this The approach implies that communication is not neutral but that it is loaded with specific ideologies and values, therefore the excessive and extensive use of repetitions and imitations is seen as a practice that obviates the way of thinking of the person limiting his creativity and spontaneity. The approach considers repetition not as a central technique, but as a resource that can be optionally used by the teacher especially to reinforce the pronunciation of sounds. Repetition is beneficial as long as it is proposed through contextualized, meaningful, varied and time-spaced exercises. Learning is significant when the contents relate to what the student already knows. That is, when the ideas presented are connected with some existing idea of the student’s cognitive structure (Ausubel, 1983).
Thus, CUDI assumes the communicative, behavioral, cognitive and socio-constructivist approaches, which are based on the interaction, flexibility, creativity and motivation of the student through the use of the target language, developing the formation of correct linguistic habits based on the interaction between students the teacher and the use of authentic and significant tasks in a continuous and progressive way in the teaching of languages. These approaches are focused on action (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), thus achieving language acquisition through mastery of reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written communication and oral communication skills.
Likewise, CUDI assumes fundamental autonomy in student learning. And for this, virtual classrooms for all languages are permanently built and updated.
