Step 1:
Determine if You’re Eligible

Take a moment to think about your current language skills in the language that you wish to be tested in (not English). If you can answer “Yes, I can do this fairly easily” to each statement, then you will probably be able to earn at least 1-2 credits when you take the language test. If you can answer “Yes, I can do this very easily” to all of the statements, then you may be able to earn 3-4 credits when you get tested.

Listening
I can understand ideas on familiar topics expressed through phrases, short sentences, and frequently used expressions.

Reading

Spoken Production
I can use a series of phrases and sentences to provide basic information about familiar topics.

Writing
I can write simple descriptions and short messages and request or provide information on familiar topics.
