Personally I already know 4 languages so was looking to get credit for it, was planning to take free CLEP tests in German and French and then use them towards my Foreign Languages and later International studies degree. But test centers shut down so, was thinking to test out proficiency test for my mother tongue but then changed to a major that doesn't require knowledge of foreign languages, and so I didn't get to do that either. Now I am majoring in History so I am going to use that knowledge to just read books and deepen my knowledge of history instead. Amazed at how the academic journey changes. I know Latin too but hard to find any courses that give credit for it. So will just use that knowledge later in combination with what I am studying.

I used to just do it for fun. Now I do it for school and no longer reside in an English speaking nation. A better question to me is: why not learn multiple languages?

Pardon my ignorance, but I searched and didn't find the answer. I have some basic Spanish proficency, how would I use these tests? 

Awesome background, I am a teacher and need 20 credits for a raise. They can be bachelor's or grad. How would I use these tests to get undergrad or grad credits? Please go slow, I'm new.

Wow! this is so cool. So you can earn up to 24 credits for using a foreign language? (12 credits for speaking test, 6 credits for writing test, 6 credits for reading test)

For example, I do this to communicate with foreigners. There are many interesting people in the world. And as a bonus, my job requires knowledge of several languages. I regularly sign contracts and patents, but how can I sign if I do not understand thoroughly what the contract is about. But such documents require accurate translation, so I often order a service from https://thewordpoint.com/services/certif...n-services because any mistakes can have serious consequences, up to challenging your rights to your own invention.

Please refer to post #11 on this thread (posted by dfrecore) for details. ACTFL is the organization you register to take the test. You can obtain up to 12 credits from a 30 minutes oral proficiency interview by phone alone. Language testing international conducts the interview. Questions are not about grammar or anything. Just casual conversation about your day, may be a scenario you discussed which they will ask you to do a short speech etc. It used to be you need to go to a college to do this test. Now you can do it from home. Yes, Spanish will work.
