11. Take a CLEP test.

Updated: Jan 25, 2020

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers two levels of tests of Spanish. Taking a test will cost you about $90 and can be done almost any time at almost any college or university.

The tests were developed by the College Boards, the people behind AP and SAT. They are designed to allow college students to test out of taking Spanish 101 and 102, but anyone can take them for any reason.

Signing up for a CLEP test will focus your energies, give you an immediate goal, and show your strong and weak areas. No one needs to know you’re taking the test; no one needs to know your score.
