Program Overview

The online Everyday Spanish Language certificate* incorporates exceptionally rich multimedia lessons and provides you with an interactive learning experience that simulates a wide variety of everyday communication situations.

Our online courses further build a strong community of learners through online discussion forums in English. The courses will also provide you with a vast array of additional resources beyond the required course material.

The lessons are an excellent learning tool because they use sight, writing, speaking, exercises and games, so every sense is challenged and you don't get bored. I enhanced different parts of my language skills such as grammar, speech, reading and listening. In the virtual classroom, learners can talk to the teacher/instructor and to each other. The instructor is very personal and adjusts to your skill level. The virtual classroom allows learners to attend sessions from anywhere in the world. Overall, I enjoy learning with this program and would definitely recommend it!

-- Marion

The online languages course is convenient, flexible and easy to access at my own pace. The lessons are great for learning a second language. I can complete lessons during my lunch time, before I go to bed or on the weekends. If I have any questions, I send messages to the instructor, who responds quickly. The virtual classroom is helpful for practising conversation, so I use it every chance I get.
