Independent Study Option

Spanish

The Special Language Credit Option is a challenge-for-credit mechanism that allows students in high school to obtain credits for proficiency in languages other than English or French, which are the two official languages of instruction in Manitoba. Schools are responsible for coordinating and administering Special Language Credit Option examinations.

Spanish is the official language of Spain, Mexico, most nations in Central and South America, and a number of Caribbean nations.
