Course Placement

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

If you have had previous experience or education in this language, please talk to the language advisor prior to enrolling in a language course. The language advisor would be able to interview briefly and recommend a best placement based on your written, spoken, listening, literary, and cultural competence.

If you cannot talk with the language advisor before enrolling, general guidelines for enrolling in Arabic courses can be found on Miami's Foreign Language Placement test web site. Please read the instructions on this site carefully, select Arabic, and read the guidelines for a general placement recommendation.
