Placement Test

All students considering a French course should take the French placement exam, to be offered on Monday 1 September in McConnell B15. There will be two sessions, at 1:00-2:00 PM and at 2:00-3:00 PM.

If you studied French in high school, we will pre-place you in one of our courses according to your Achievement and/or Advanced Placement test scores. We strongly encourage you to take our own French placement test administered during orientation, as it will let us place you more accurately than the standardized tests.
