  • Export to my Calendar

In this workshop we will review the language requirements currently in place for the different areas of graduate study and the best ways for you to prepare to demonstrate the required proficiency. We'll start by specifically discussing what is entailed by the required proficiency examination and how to tailor your prep efforts to address the exam's demands. We will then utilize a standardized instrument to so you can individually determine your foreign language experience and capabilities and have a clear idea of where you stand in regard to the required proficiency. For those planning on starting a new language or brushing up on a language you have not revisited for some time, we will discuss strategies specific to language study as well as the resources available to you on the AU campus.
