Spanish Levels 1 & 2
This course can be used as a study resource, for professional development, or to earn college credit by passing a CLEP™ exam (multiple-choice examination). Each college sets its own credit-granting policies for the exam, so check with your college admissions office, test center, or academic adviser before taking the test.
The Spanish Language CLEP™ exam will measure the student’s proficiency in Spanish reading and listening comprehension as would be expected after two to four semesters in college study. The exam will test knowledge gained from the end of the first year of study to the end of the second; therefore, both year 1 and year 2 are combined into the one exam.
The exam has two Listening sections and one Reading section. All sections are timed.
- The two Listening sections together are approximately 30 minutes in length. The amount of time students have to answer a question varies according to the section and does not include the time they spend listening to the test material.
- The Reading section is 60 minutes in length.
Spanish Levels 1 & 2
Spanish is a Romance language that originated in the Iberian Peninsula and today has over 483 million native speakers, mainly in Spain and the Americas. It is a global language, the world’s second-most spoken native language, after Mandarin Chinese, and the world’s fourth-most spoken language, after English, Mandarin Chinese and Hindi.*
The Spanish Levels 1 & 2 exam contains approximately 120 questions to be answered in approximately 90 minutes. Some of these are pretest questions that will not be scored. There are three separately timed sections. The three sections are weighted so that each question contributes equally to the total score.
