Class Placement.


Class Placement

At Drew, all students are required to demonstrate proficiency through the intermediate level in one foreign language. Students should take the language placement exam in Spanish before registering for courses if they are continuing with a language started in high school or if they speak the language at home. It is highly recommended that the sequence of language courses be completed consecutively.

During my Junior year, I took a grammar course for heritage speakers and it was truly one of the most beneficial classes I have taken during my time at Drew. Not only has my proficiency in Spanish improved, but I gained useful knowledge that can be applied to other Spanish classes in the department. The wonderful experience that I had in that grammar class led me to become a Spanish major. I consider learning Spanish a useful skill for my future career in the legal field. ”
