ACTFL OPIc – Spanish

This is the last step in the Spanish certificate program.

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

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.

Receiving an intermediate high or higher on the ACTFL WPT and OPIc fulfills two of the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Spanish Language teaching licensure requirements.
