The first of the year’s language proficiency exams was offered last weekend. To graduate, all Fletcher students need to demonstrate proficiency in a second language. For non-native English speakers, their second language is, well, English. For everyone else, the language exam is the opportunity to show their stuff.
There’s an oral component to the exam, which is scheduled by students individually. The reading exam is a big community event. And here are the languages in which the test was offered Saturday: Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, Swahili, Ukrainian, Urdu, and Vietnamese. In other years, other languages might find their way onto the list, depending on student interest.
