*ACTFL Oral Proficiency Exam
The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Oral Proficiency Interview is a standardized procedure for the assessment of functional speaking ability. It is a face-to-face or telephone interview between a certified ACTFL tester and an examinee. The test is used to determine how well a person speaks a language by comparing his or her performance of specific communication tasks with the criteria for each of ten proficiency levels. Lakeland College requires candidates for State of Wisconsin foreign language teaching certification to be proficient at the Intermediate High level. Information regarding the ACTFL examination is available in the Office of the Registrar.
