Academic Information

Academic Information

You will be able to enroll in one 60-hour Spanish course during this four week program.

60-hour Spanish Language courses
60-hour Spanish courses are 4-week long, intensive modular courses that are held for four hours each morning. These courses are an excellent opportunity for you to advance your Spanish language abilities.

Language Level Placement
All students enrolling in a language course above the Beginner level must take a Spanish language placement exam prior to departure. The exam will indicate each student's language proficiency level and determine the courses in which the student is eligible to enroll.

Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the host university course level recommendations and course codes and are only recommendations.

At Veritas University, course codes are composed of two parts: an alpha code indicating the discipline or field of study and a numeric code that indicates the type of course and level. The first number indicates the level or degree of complexity of ongoing research.

  • Courses that start with a 1 are introductory courses or beginner level language acquisition courses.
  • Courses that start with a 2 are courses that require more hours of independent study and are intermediate level language acquisition courses.
  • Courses that start with a 3 are courses that require research and presentations, have field trips or visits requiring reports, and are advanced level language acquisition courses.
  • Courses that start with a 4 have a very similar level to level 3 courses, but usually are "specialty areas" within a discipline. These ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisers and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.

Requests for sample syllabi can be made to your San José Program Manager.
