Which Spanish language course should I take?

Students with no background in the language may enroll themselves into the relevant introductory course.

Students who have some background in Spanish should contact the course instructor for a placement interview if they are enrolling in a Spanish course for the first time.

Students who have transferred from a college or a university and took Spanish in their prior institution should take the next level course.

* We reserve the right to move students to more proficiency-appropriate courses or to unenroll students when there is no appropriate course for them.

Placement interviews

Students who have taken Spanish courses in the past (high school) as well as students who have experience with the language, either because they have traveled and/ or lived in Spanish-speaking countries or because they are Spanish heritage speakers, should arrange a placement interview with Dr. Isabel Mayo-Harp (mayoharp@sfu.ca) before they register for courses.

Students who have no experience with Spanish should enroll in SPAN 102.

Students who are unsure about their level or background in Spanish for SPAN 102 or SPAN 103 should contact Isabel Mayo-Harp, at mayoharp@sfu.ca.

Students are expected to provide true information about their language background and language learning experiences to the best of their knowledge. Concealing your knowledge of the language and/or providing false information are considered academic dishonesty and can be recorded on the your academic record.
