Placement and Proficiency Tests

Language exams are for University of Michigan students who are planning on furthering their language study or want to test out of a language requirement. No preparation is necessary for the placement test – it is intended to be a tool to place you in the course most appropriate for your level.

For information on language exams, see the department website: http://www.lsa.umich.edu/neareast/languages/placementtests
