Course Placement

For general information about placement in Chinese, please access the language placement guide at the ILRC.

If this is a new language for you (i.e., no prior experience in this language), students should enroll in Chinese 101 and do not need to take a placement exam or advisement evaluation.

If you have had previous experience or education in this language,you will need to take the Chinese Placement Test first to see which level you should enroll in. Go to Miami's Foreign Language Placement test web site and select Chinese for your language. Then select the number of years you have previously had learning Chinese. If you have had 1/2 years, round up to the next whole year of previous experience. When you are finished with the test, you will receive a raw score and a suggested placement.

If you believe that the language placement is incorrect or have doubts about the placment, please talk to the language advisor, who would be able to interview you briefly and recommend a best placement based on your written, spoken, listening, literary, and cultural competence.
