Japanese Placement Test Information

JAPANESE 111-1, 121-1 and 211-1 are offered only in the fall quarters.

JAPANESE 111-2, 121-2 and 211-2 are offered only in the winter quarters.

JAPANESE 111-3, 121-3 and 211-3 are offered only in the spring quarters.

If your placement indicates, "Need oral test", you will need to take a follow-up examination.

If your placement result lists two courses  ["121-3 / (211-1)"] , the course without the parenthesis is your placement; however, if you want to start Japanese at Northwestern earlier and/or if you want to take a little more challenging course, you may go to the course indicated in the parenthesis and consult with the instructor.

If your placement indicates "121-2 (121-3)" or "121-3 / (211-1)," you are NOT placed out of WCAS Foreign Language Requirement.

If your placement indicates 211-1, 2, 3 or 310, 311, 312, 313, 314, you are placed out of WCAS Foreign Language Requirement and have completed the prerequisite for the Minor in Japanese Language and Culture.
