Not sure how much French, German, or Spanish you have retained from high school? Here is a painless way to get a rough placement for a class in any of those languages.

Visit this webpage.

Create an account by inputting your name, e-mail, NMU IN (if you have one, otherwise leave blank), and password (passwords must be at least 8 characters long and not commonly used). Agree to the privacy policy, and then hit the Create Account button. 

Once you've created your account, Sign In. Use your e-mail address and password.

Choose the proper test, then follow the directions.

This test takes about 15-30 minutes. After you take the test, the program will give you a recommendation on what class to take (semester 1 = 101, 2 = 102, 3 = 201, 4 = 202).  It automatically sends your score to the department of Languages, Literatures and International Studies. E-mail if you want to confirm that your score is a good indicator of the class you should take.

Note: If you need to take the test more than once, you will need to create a new account using a different e-mail address.

Please note that the department placement policy requires this exam if you took the language in high school.
