Frequently Asked Questions
Which languages can I study at UIS?
UIS students may elect to study one (or more) of the following six languages: Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.
What should I do first?
You start by filling out the Modern Language Information Form. If you elect to continue in the study of a language you have previously studied, and need to take the placement test, we will send you information about the next upcoming on-campus placement test.
Again, if you will be studying a language that is new to you, you do not need to take the test. You will simply register for the course when you come to Summer Orientation. In either case, your prompt response to the Information Form will help us help you to plan for fall semester classes.
