ONLINE LANGUAGE PLACEMENT – FOR CHINESE, FRENCH, GERMAN, OR SPANISH
The language placement test is done on a computer. Students answer questions that increase in difficulty until a threshold is determined to accurately place a student into a language level. (Levels 1-4 with scores are listed at the top of this page.) This test is untimed. It usually takes between 10-30 minutes.
SPANISH PLACEMENT – INTERVIEW (FOR HERITAGE SPEAKERS OF SPANISH)
This Spanish placement is a short oral interview that usually takes between 10-15 minutes. Students who learned Spanish at home or native speakers of Spanish are encouraged to develop writing ability, creative and critical thinking skills, professional development, and cultural diversity knowledge in Spanish. Please contact the chair of the Department of World Languages & Literature by email email@example.com or by phone 203-837-8485 to arrange an interview.
*Placement exams indicate the recommended entry level of language study. The placement does not give university credit or fulfill any curricular requirements, including the language requirement.
