Lab and Placement Exams
The Modern Language (ML) Lab, located in Room B-206, oversees the weekly lab hour that is part of all elementary, intermediate, and heritage language classes. The ML Lab also provides language-tutoring and refresher sessions. The ML Lab offers Placement/Exemption Exams to students who are already familiar with any of the languages offered by the Modern Language Program.
