Swahili, Tagalog and other language courses do not fulfill AES requirements.
However, these classes can be used to satisfy the University’s foreign language requirement, or may be applied to the electives category.
These language sequences are very successful related offerings of Afro-American Studies and Asian American Studies. Undergraduate and graduate students use these courses to satisfy language requirements.
Tagalog Placement Interviews determine which Tagalog course level is appropriate for your existing language competencies. Placement interviews in Tagalog cannot be used to waive language requirements. No credits are given for taking these exams. Please contact instructor to schedule your placement interview.
Tagalog Proficiency Exams are used to satisfy or waive foreign language requirements. This is also to test what an applicant should know after one year of Tagalog instruction, or the equivalent of Intermediate-Mid emerging High level according to ACTFL standards. To waive 2-year foreign language requirements, an assessment of Advanced-Mid is required. A follow-up written exam will be scheduled with the UW Tagalog Instructor. Please contact the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) for more information such as schedules and pricing for Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI).
