ACTFL OPIc – Portuguese

This is the last step in the Portuguese Language Certificate program.

The Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) is a highly specialized method of testing to ascertain the Portuguese proficiency level of candidates in the areas of interactive listening and speaking.

The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) OPI ratings are recognized by many Fortune 500 companies, U.S. government agencies and by the American Council on Education (ACE) for the awarding of college credit.

Register online. Once registered, you will be contacted by the UWM School of Continuing Education Language Department ( or 414-227-3118) to set up your interview time and date.

You may schedule an ACTFL OPI or Written Proficiency Test (WPT) with Continuing Education anytime, regardless of your participation in the Portuguese Language Certificate program.

This course can be applied to the Portuguese Language Certificate.
