Frequently Asked Questions


What language should I take?

If you have already achieved some degree of proficiency in a language and are excited about continuing, take the placement test and plan to enroll in the appropriate course.

If you are not excited about continuing the language you studied in high school, consider starting a new language; many Carleton students fulfill the requirement in a language they have not previously studied. This is especially true for languages not commonly taught in high schools, including Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Hebrew and Ancient Greek. For more detailed in formation, be sure to check out the link on "Choosing a Language."
