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 (wildcats1). 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 the wildcats1 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.
