About the Test (French & Spanish):

The test is approximately one hour long. It consists of numerous short answer questions on a computer in addition to a writing sample (please bring paper and pen). The exam is not given by appointment. You are welcome to walk in within the 2 hour time frame, but allow yourself enough time to finish before the time at which the exam ends. The exam is administered on a first-come first-serve basis. If all the computer stations are in use when you arrive, please be prepared to wait.

Italian Placement Examination:

Please e-mail Professor Alicia Ramos at to make arrangements to take the Placement Exam in Italian. The Italian Placement Exam will take place during the same scheduled dates and times listed above.


All examinations are held in the Chanin Language Center (209 Hunter West).

    • you have some knowledge of the language but never studied it formally.
    • you have had additional exposure to the language through family, school, travel or work connections.
