I have many!My questions:1. How long is this program? Master or certification2. How much does it cost? I will be an international student.3. I have a Bachelor diploma in Modern languages, and I finished a specialization in Bilingual Education in 2016. It was completed in English. Do I need an English test?4. Can I work while studying?5. Due to the coronavirus, universities are closed and transcripts are difficult to get. Also, the Canadian embassy could get more time to process the student's visas. What can I do?6. Those transcripts have to be translated here in Bogota or Canada?
Maria Porras
30:42
The program I ask for is Translation.

i come from out of province, what are my options if I don’t get a place in residence?

I am interested in pursuing the Trilingual Excellence path, as I am French Immersion and am taking Spanish throughout high school. When you are assessed in Spanish, does it also determine what level of Spanish you start at, or is it introductory Spanish first for everyone?
