Foreign Language Evaluation

Earn College Credit for Foreign Language Proficiency

Can you speak, read, and write in a foreign language? Do you have academic proficiency, even though you have not taken college-level courses in the language? If so, the Berlitz Language Center can evaluate your foreign language proficiency and, based on that evaluation, you can earn equivalent undergraduate college credit at West.

You will be evaluated by Berlitz on a scale from Poor to Excellent in:

  • Comprehension
  • Fluency, speaking ability
  • Pronunciation
  • Grammar
  • Reading
  • Writing

Depending on the evaluation results, a maximum of 12 lower division credits and 6 upper division credits may be awarded. An "Excellent" must be earned in all categories to earn 6 upper division credits.

Please contact a student advisor for additional information about Berlitz.
