Welcome to Stanford University Spanish Language Program

In concert with the mission of the Stanford Language Center, our goal is to prepare students to live, work, study and research in a Spanish-speaking country. It is our hope that this website will serve as a useful tool toward that end, not only for Stanford students and instructors, but also for Spanish language learners, instructors, and enthusiasts worldwide.

This site is navigable in two ways, using the drop-down menus above or the Quick Links bar at right.

Taking Spanish at Stanford

All Stanford students with previous exposure to the language must take the Spanish Placement Test—both the online written followed by the oral component—before taking Spanish classes.
