French CLEP Test

The French CLEP Test covers the material that is taught in a one-semester class at the 101 and 201 college level. This test covers all the information that you would learn in a one or two semester course in beginning French.

Before you take the test you should have a good understanding of of French. You should have taken at least one or two years of French in school or have a background in the language before attempting this test. If you are a native speaker, you should absolutely take this test for CLEP credit.

You will need to answer 121 questions in 90 minutes. There is no penalty for guessing on the test and there are some pretest questions included that are not scored. This is a unique test as your score will determine how much credit you will receive. At most schools, 50 is considered a passing score. If you score a 50-58, you will receive 6 credit hours. If you score a 59 or higher, you will receive 12 credit hours. For a native speaker, this is a must as the classes can be counted as elective credits.

I just wanted to drop you guys a line and tell you that I passed my final CLEP exam last Monday which gives me all of the credits I need to graduate. I have taken 30 credits worth of CLEP exams and I’ve passed them all by using your study guides. I actually purchased one of your study guides and failed my first test. I didn’t fail because of your guide though, I failed because I didn’t manage my time effectively and I ran short. I looked at your study guide after failing though, and a lot of the information on your study guide was very relevant to what was on the test. So, I tried again with a different test and a different study guide of yours. I passed. This pattern continues for 30 credits. I graduate on June 9th thanks to you guys, so I wanted to say thank you. The guides were worth every penny. Thanks, -John S 5/21/07
