AU Spanish Students Making the Grade!

Two of our AU Seniors have recently received high marks on the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview! The rating is currently used worldwide by academic institutions, government agencies, and private corporations for purposes such as: academic placement, student assessment, program evaluation, professional certification, hiring and promotional qualification.

Caitlin Dalton, a senior double majoring in Spanish and History, decided to take the OPI in order to best market her Spanish proficiency on graduate school applications and in her future career in law. Caitlin studied abroad for a semester last year in Chile. Congratulations Caitlin!

Andrea Catanzarito, a Foreign Language Education Major in Spanish, took the OPI in order to receive state teacher licensure. Andrea spent a summer in Costa Rica in 2010 and another in Spain in 2011. Congratulations Andrea!
