Whether you have post-pandemic dreams of traveling the world and sounding like a local, or merely are trying to satisfy the foreign language requirements for your major, learning a new language is not a one-time thing. It takes practice and commitment to build a habit, and ultimately become proficient.

Students at The University of Texas at Austin are required to have completed two years of a foreign language in high school, but deficiencies may be addressed by taking college level courses to meet the beginning level of proficiency.

UT offers excellent language classes, and the degree requirements differ from college to college. For example, achieving intermediate proficiency in a foreign language is required in the College of Liberal Arts. Students in the Moody College of Communication must demonstrate intermediate proficiency, or take two consecutive courses in one language and one approved culture course relevant to the language. Foreign language and culture requirements vary by degree in the College of Natural Sciences. Students in the Cockrell School of Engineering are expected to meet the University’s basic education requirements for admission.

Like many students, you might find yourself struggling to keep up and earn the grades you want. Some tutoring sessions are available at the University, such as through the Sanger Learning Center. However, you might be seeking other options to match your schedule, language and desired skill level. That’s where Preply can help.
