Leading Change in Language Learning

We offer engaging educational resources and tools to teach your students to communicate in Spanish and become global citizens.

Founded in 1988

Difusión has published language materials for teachers and students for more than 30 years. Today we operate in 107 countries all over the world and our 60-plus staff members work with more than 200 contributors.

Our mission is to help students learn Spanish they can use in real-life situations. And we do it by creating engaging and meaningful content that sparks their curiosity and motivates them to learn. We strongly believe that educators play a key role in language learning, and part of our mission is to support them and give them opportunities for professional development.

Building cross-cultural connections

We love the Spanish language—in all its varieties—and the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Our books display a rich, open, and modern understanding of this world and these cultures. They move students away from stereotypes and teach them to think critically, both in and outside of the classroom.

These are our values

Having them is not enough. We live them.

COMMITMENT

Because everyone on the Difusión team has a background in education and works closely with educators and students, our commitment goes far beyond our daily work. We understand the needs of educators and students and we are passionate about looking for solutions and tools to help them succeed.

AFFORDABILITY

We are committed to providing high-quality print and digital content and to offering affordable prices to all those who want to learn a language. We guarantee lower prices for high-quality content and for simple and easy-to-use technology.

EXPERIENCE

We view languages as tools for communication and action. To learn a language and build authentic communicative competency, we need a realistic context, a true need to communicate, a focus on meaning, and the right linguistic resources. And that’s what we provide in our educational materials.

INNOVATION

Our educational materials focus on the most current pedagogical methodology. We work hard to create materials that follow the ACTFL Guidelines for Proficiency, include Can-Do statements, and assimilate the 5 Cs. Our digital resources focus on original and authentic content via a simple and easy-to-use platform.

EDUCATORS

We see teachers from around the world as our partners, and the core of our mission is to support them by providing professional development opportunities, high-quality documents and activities, and instructor resources in an easily accessible format.

STUDENTS

Our content is created to help students learn Spanish fully so they can communicate and interact with other communities and cultures, both in the United States and abroad, either in professional or personal contexts. We help students become global citizens by developing their intercultural and critical thinking skills.
