Language Placement Test

If you have previously studied a language and would like to continue at Babson, you will need to take a language placement test prior to entering a course.

Language placement tests are available for Spanish, French, and Chinese. Students taking Chinese should email Professor Zhao regarding an oral exam in addition to the placement test. Students interested in Japanese should email Professor Abramoff regarding placement.

You are bound by the honor code in taking this test. Once a student has taken the exam, they should email Professor Rademacher, the language program director. The Director of Languages and Global Cultures or another professor will contact you by email promptly following the test to inform you of your placement. The Director will also contact the Registrar with the appropriate waiver.
