Chinese Language Placement Test Link
Welcome to the Chinese Language Placement Test!
For questions regarding the Chinese placement test, please contact Dr. Hsu-Te Cheng (firstname.lastname@example.org).
To determine proper paths towards the major/minor, please see the following notes:
Chinese heritage speakers are required to take Chinese language courses in the heritage track (CHN103, 203, 303, and 404). A heritage speaker is defined as “a student who is raised in a home where Mandarin Chinese is spoken by the family members including grandparents, who speaks or merely understands Mandarin Chinese, and who is to some degree bilingual in English and Mandarin Chinese.”
Students who achieve 4 or 5 on the Chinese AP exam or 6 or 7 on the IB may receive 3 credits equivalent of CHN102. Placement is required to determine the first course to take at Emory. To fulfill the GER language requirement, students placed in the non-heritage track must take a course above CHN102 (i.e., CHN201 or higher). Students placed in the heritage track must take a course on the heritage track (CHN103, 203, 303 or 403), so cannot use the AP/IB CHN102 credit to fulfill GER requirement, but may use it towards graduation.
