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 courses place a strong focus on comprehension, written and spoken expression, Spanish vocabulary and grammar, while incorporating interesting aspects of Spanish culture.
We have enhanced our online language courses in a number of ways, which go beyond traditional online learning environments. Our virtual classroom allows you to drop in and speak face-to-face with your instructor and classmates four times during the course to ask questions and practice speaking. 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.
*Offered in conjunction with Rosetta Stone®
Students can now choose to complete Everyday Spanish 1 & 2 or 3 & 4 or 5 & 6 in the same semester. This stream will allow students to complete the Everyday Spanish Language certificate in one year rather than two if starting from Level 1.
Choosing your Program
If you are registered in Humber's Spanish Language program, you can move between the in-class and online classes to complete your Spanish studies. This provides you with the flexibility to complete a Spanish Language Certificate either in class, online or using a combination of both. The choice is yours!
If you are looking to earn the Everyday Spanish Language Certificate, you can begin your studies at your appropriate level rather than having to start at level one. However, you must complete at least levels five and six to receive the Everyday Spanish Language Certificate.
This placement test is designed to help you informally assess your Spanish language proficiency to gain a better idea of which course to begin your Spanish studies. If you have no previous Spanish language experience, you are welcome to take the test, but should register into Spanish 1. The placement test focuses on knowledge of basic grammatical structures; it does not evaluate oral and written skills. The placement test contains 50 multiple choice questions. It is recommended that you take the test without the use of any study aids to obtain a more accurate result. Take the Spanish placement test now.
If you have graduated from our Everyday Spanish Language Certificate and wish to continue your Spanish studies, you can register in our online Professional Spanish Language Certificate. You should enter the professional stream at a higher level as focus on professional communication and specialized business vocabulary begin at Level 4.

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!
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.
Note: Courses in the Spanish language certificates do not qualify for General Education credit.
