8th Grade World Language Placement Assessment

A requirement for high school graduation includes 20 credits of World Language, which equals two years or four semesters of study. Three years of world language study are recommended by most 4-year colleges (UC/CSU). If your child already speaks and can read some Spanish, Chinese, or Japanese, he or she will have the opportunity to take a placement test this winter (test administration window - 2/26/2018) The results of this assessment determines the correct placement into a high school world language class. Taking advanced language classes is a great way to help your child get into college and to earn the Seal of Biliteracy award on his or her high school diploma. As well, your child may be able to earn college credit in high school for taking an AP course or an advanced world language class at CCSF.  Please contact your child’s 8th grade counselor for more information.

Examen de nivel para la lengua española para la secundaria

Uno de los requisitos para poder graduarse de la escuela secundaria es acumular 20 créditos de algún idioma mundial, lo que equivale a dos años o cuatro semestres de estudio. La mayoría de las universidades de 4 años (UC / CSU) recomiendan que los candidatos tengan tres años de estudio en un idioma mundial. Si su hijo(a) habla y puede leer a un nivel básico en español, chino o japonés, él/ella podría tomar un examen de ubicación durante el invierno (la fecha para tomar el examen es del 26/2/2018). Los resultados de este examen determinarían la ubicación adecuada de su hijo(a) para este tipo de clases. Tomar clases avanzadas de idiomas es una gran oportunidad para que su hijo(a) pueda ingresar a la universidad y obtener el premio “Sello de lectoescritura bilingüe” en su diploma de escuela secundaria. Asimismo, su hijo(a) podría obtener créditos universitarios al tomar un curso AP (ubicación avanzada) en la escuela secundaria o una clase avanzada de idiomas en CCSF.
