All students must take a Spanish language placement exam upon arrival in Madrid.

Students who arrive in Spain having completed the equivalent of less than one year of college-level Spanish will likely place into beginning-level courses. Students who arrive in Spain having completed the equivalent of one year of college-level Spanish will likely place into intermediate-level courses. Students who arrive in Spain having completed the equivalent of two years of college-level Spanish will likely place into advanced-level courses.
