Good morning, @11jesusf ...

As a student, you cannot change the language setting per course, but you can change this at your user level which would affect all courses that you are taking within the Canvas environment.  Check out this Guide: How do I change the language preference in my user... - Canvas Community.

I hope this will be of help to you.  Please let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
