This article pays tribute to a Chilean professor, Fernando Plaza Mallea, who idealized and initiated the Spanish Language Teaching Programme at UFG, currently celebrating 20 years since the graduation of the first group. He taught Latin and Spanish at the former ICHL and at what we know today as the College of Letters, at the Federal University of Goias. Professor Plaza saw the possibility of a Spanish Teaching Education Programme after the creation of Mercosul, the South Common Market, in 1991, a partnership on free trade and customs between Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay; and also due to the fact that Brazil is surrounded by Spanish-speaking countries in South America. When professor Plaza retired in 1996, he could see his dream, though partially, fulfilled. According to the UFG Department of Registration and Diplomas, from 1998 to 2018, the Spanish Language Teaching Programme contributed to the education of 268 teachers. Many of these alumni have so far applied for different teaching selections and have taught in different levels (primary and secondary schools, technology institutions, and colleges). After being able to also witness some of his former students working as professors at the UFG Spanish Language Teaching Programme, professor Plaza died in 2004.
