Students participating in ILISA’s Spanish courses may earn 3-6 undergraduate semester hours in Spanish through an arrangement with Weber State University (WSU). University credit is available at a beginners and intermediate level course (no graduate credit yet).
Arranging credits for Spanish courses:
Tuition fees at present are $30/credit hour. At the end of the Spanish Program at ILISA you need to fill out a form and pay the cost for the WSU Transcript Form directly to WSU. Once received, the WSU Registrar will mail the transcript directly to the mailing address you stated on the form.
For more information on receiving college credit at ILISA please contact our enrollment coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Craig Bergeson, Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures, Weber State University directly, email@example.com.
We offer language study abroad programs that are tailored specifically to meet the needs of your group. We have included a discount up to 30% for university groups (10+ students) to take part in our professional Spanish immersion courses.
ILISA is certified by ACTFL
ILISA has ACTFL certified OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview) Testers!
ACTFL Certified Testers are specialized language professionals who have completed a rigorous training process and have met the established criteria for certification by ACTFL. ACTFL OPI Tester Certification is a highly valued professional credential that is recognized nationally and internationally.
ILISA helps the students to prepare for the ACTFL exam.
How do ILISA students profit from our ACTFL certification?
This standardized testing system provides a comparable outcome of a speaker’s functional ability in language. OPI ratings are commonly used for admission into programs, placement within a language sequence and determination of the fulfillment of exit or graduation requirements.
Furthermore, ACTFL OPI Testing is recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) and can help you receive college credit for a study abroad program at ILISA Language Institute.
What is ACTFL?
The ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines were created by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages in order to provide a means of assessing the proficiency of a foreign language speaker.
The guidelines are broken up into different proficiency levels: novice, intermediate, advanced, and superior. Additionally, each of these (except superior) is further subdivided into low, mid and high. These proficiency levels are defined separately for ability to listen, speak, read and write. Thus, depending on the emphases of the programs attended, students may reach a different level in spoken language than in reading or writing.
