   Placement Exam



011 & 012 Elementary I & II

These two courses constitute the first year of language study.  011 is an introductory level course for students with no previous or minimal experience in the language.  012, the sequel to 011, is for students with one semester of college language or one year of high school language.  Emphasis is on the oral aspects of the language with substantial work on reading and writing skills and on introduction to the culture.


103 & 104 Intermediate III & IV

Students who have satisfactorily completed six hours of elementary language, or who have had at least two years of language in high school, continue the development of the basic skills in aural comprehension, speaking, and writing.  In addition, emphasis is placed on independent readings.


For a more complete description of these courses, please refer to the KU Undergraduate Handbook.


The placement exam is designed for students with previous language experience who want to continue studying that same language.
