Foreign Language Equivalencies

Academic credit for proficiency in a foreign language may be granted through an Oral Proficiency Interview and Writing Proficiency Test.  The procedure is standardized in order to assess global speaking ability, measuring language production holistically by determining patterns of strengths and weaknesses. The proficiency levels are established by the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Language.
