Programs and Courses in Spanish Language and Culture

Who Is This For?

Our Spanish programs and courses are for students for whom Spanish is a second or foreign language.

It is important to note that programs and courses in Spanish language and culture are intended for French-speaking students and are not suited for students who do not master French.


  • Learn or perfect your Spanish in optimal conditions with the necessary support;
  • Prepare for studies in Spanish;
  • Prepare for an internship or work in a Spanish-speaking country;
  • Learn more about Spanish cultures;
  • Prepare for a trip in a Spanish-speaking country or region;
  • It’s the most spoken language in the Americas!
