Italian (ITAL) Courses

Placement for Language Students

Note:  A placement test is required for students who have previous training and/or experience, but who have not taken a course in this language at Carleton.  For details, please consult carleton.ca/slals/modern-languages and follow the placement test instructions before registering.

Students who are found to be registered in an inappropriate level of the course will be deregistered following assessment by their instructor (and/or the Director of the School). It is crucial for students to complete the placement test in a manner that truly demonstrates their language proficiency.

Students should note that they cannot go backward in a sequence of levels in language courses.
