Q. If I take Spanish 1 & 2 at Adams and I take Spanish 3 at RUHS, do I have to take Spanish 4

colleges will be able to see you met the foreign language requirement. Even though you only
took one year of language at the high school, colleges acknowledge you have to have
understood the first two years so they recognize the level you get to.

grade in previous level and teacher recommendation.

school level course. If you reach Spanish 3 in the 9th grade, you will only earn 10 credits
toward graduation since it is only one year you completed a language course at RUHS.
