This test takes about 20-30 minutes.  After you take the test, the program will give you a recommendation on what class to take (semester 1 = 101, 2 = 102 or 105, 3 = 201, 4 = 202).  It automatically sends your score to the department head of Modern Languages and Literatures, Tim Compton. E-mail mll@nmu.edu if you want to confirm that your score is a good indicator of the class you should take.

Note:  SN 105 is an intensive first-year Spanish course which includes the SN 101 and SN 102 material in a 6-credit course. Students should take this course if they want a review from the beginning, but can move more quickly than absolute beginners of Spanish.

Please note that the department placement policy requires this exam if you took the language in high school.
