International education can happen anywhere in any shape or form - abroad or right here in the community!
The Spanish Language Consortium will be hosting Spanish career days in both Calgary and Edmonton during IEW. Students will have the opportunity to explore the benefits of learning Spanish through workshops, language lessons and information booths. Please contact International Education Services for more details.
