Italian Placement Exam Information

Italian
The Italian exam consists of three sections: oral comprehension, reading comprehension, and grammar.

Students who complete the placement exam are asked to meet with the Italian faculty at the Academic Fair during Customs Week for a brief and informal conversation in order to ascertain fluency and knowledge of Italian. To fine-tune their placement, students who have already begun their studies may be asked to submit a 400-word essay (as a Word document, dictionary permitted, no translators or other assistance permitted) on any topic after meeting with the faculty at the Academic Fair.
