York University – Glendon Campus

Focus on Languages

At Glendon, we speak the world. We are known for our focus on languages thanks to a 50+ year track record of promoting and supporting Canada’s official languages, as well as a springboard to many other languages and cultures. 

Glendon Campus is known for offering authentic learning situations in bilingual and multi-lingual environments, as well as programs and professors that are highly supportive. Knowledge of a second language is not a pre-requisite. We welcome students of various abilities and proficiency levels and our programs are primarily focused on French and English, with Spanish language opportunities. There are four levels of bilingual and trilingual certification attainable at Glendon based on your language assessment.
