Modern Language Secondary Education programs require that all candidates score at the Advanced Low level or higher on the American Council of Teachers of Foreign Language Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI), as well as on the Writing Proficiency Test (WPT) in their language major/the language they intend to teach. In order to be admitted to the Methods II course, students must demonstrate having attained a rating of at least the Advanced Low proficiency level on the OPI and the WPT. Post-baccalaureate teacher certification program students must score at these levels prior to admission to Modern Language Secondary Education programs. Given these requirements, it is important that students take advantage of study abroad experiences that will assist them in reaching high levels of second language proficiency.
