Language placement

If you have no previous knowledge of Spanish, please register in SPAN 100A or SPAN 149

If you have some previous knowledge and are unsure of which course would be best for you, please take our online language placement test and contact our Undergraduate Advisor with your results.

Language Placement Test

Once you are ready to take the test, please follow these 3 steps:

1). To take the placement test: DIALANG 
Once you click to start your test, you will see the image below. Scroll down the list until you see 'Instructions in English'.


2). The test may take 1 - 2 hours and has several sections: listening, reading, writing, structures and vocabulary. Complete every section and TAKE A SCREEN SHOT OF THE RESULTS FOR EACH ONE OF THE SECTIONS. Each one of these results will place you anywhere between level A1 and level C2. This will help us determine which Spanish class is the best one for you.
