Where do I start?
- If you have never studied the language before, you should enroll in LISP 1A/AX
- If you have studied the language before, you may not enroll in LISP 1A/AX
- If you have studied the language before, consult with your college advisor about whether you need to take an online placement test. This test will determine which course is appropriate for you. Students who have taken AP exams in these languages or other college-level courses may not need to take the online placement test - again, check with your advisor.
- If you already understand and speak Spanish fairly fluently and are a native speaker, you may not enroll in LISP 1A/AX-2C. You probably should enroll in LTSP 2D, which emphasizes acquiring skills in reading, writing, and grammar. Check with the Spanish language supervisor for proper placement.
