The courses listed under Languages include English and Chinese translation (ECT) courses and language courses in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Japanese, Spanish, Tamil, and a featured language that will be announced each year only when the course is offered. These courses are offered on a rotational basis.

Registration in all courses with the prefixes ECT and LGG are subject to the approval of the instructor. Students who intend to take any LGG A- or LGG B-level Chinese course for the first time must take the placement test/survey on this website. Students who are interested in other languages will be assessed at the beginning of the course in a manner to be determined by the instructor. Students whose level of proficiency in the language is inappropriate for the level of the course will not be approved for enrolment. In some courses, the status of students will be listed as "interim" (INT) until they are approved (APP) by their instructors. Note that students are not permitted to take courses in a language in the wrong sequence (i.e., a lower-level course after a higher-level one).

For further information about language courses, please consult the CFL Undergraduate Assistant, at or, where appropriate, the instructors of these courses.

Language Citation
UTSC offers a range of language opportunities and, as students seek international study, work opportunities and post-graduate study, they may be assisted by a notation of language proficiency. See section 6A.5 of the Calendar for more information about this notation.

Service Learning and Outreach
For an experiential learning opportunity that also serves others, consider the course CTLB03H3 (Introduction to Service Learning), which can be found in the "Teaching and Learning” section of the Calendar.
