We just spent over an hour discussing whether we should award free 8 credits to students who claim to have taken Spanish (French, German, etc.) somewhere sometime but refuse to prove their competency by passing a short free proficiency test. Because they claim to have forgotten Spanish (French, German, etc.) completely but still want the free credit. For forgetting the language completely. Got it?
Some people suggested that students should be required to take the proficiency test or take a hike if they refuse.
Other people countered with, “But poor little kiddies, they will suffer so much, this is an unfair burden.”
And now I will let you guess which of the two groups was constituted by foreigners and which by Americans.
