Fulfilling (and Excelling at) your Foreign Language Requirement Examination: Resources and Strategies

Presented by Gorki Cruz, Director, Center for Language Learning, World Languages and Cultures
We will start by looking at the current format of the exam and look at some samples. We'll continue with a discussion about what is entailed by the exam and tailoring your prep efforts to address the exam's demands. We will then utilize a standardized instrument so you can determine your foreign language experience and have a clear idea of where you stand in regard to the required proficiency. For those starting a new language or brushing up on a language, we will discuss strategies specific to language study as well as the resources here at AU.
