If you have taken Spanish in high school and want to continue taking Spanish at Lynchburg, you must first take the Foreign Language Placement Test via Moodle to find out the course in which you need to enroll.
About the Placement Test
The Foreign Language Placement Test determines your proficiency in writing, reading, and culture based on national guidelines established by ACTFL (The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages).
Since speaking and listening, the other two required skills, cannot be assessed by a written test, if you score 53 or above on the placement test you will need to complete an oral interview to determine proper upper level placement or to confirm a waiver of the foreign language requirement.
This is the only way to receive a waiver for the foreign languages component of the General Education requirement. The ACTFL proficiency guidelines help form the minimal core content of Spanish 101, 102, and 201 at Lynchburg.
Moodle is an online service that you’ll use in your classes at Lynchburg. Log-in information will be provided for you if you indicated on your schedule preference form that you would like to take Spanish in your first year. (All other students will get their user name at SOAR.)
