In the Foreign Languages Dept, there are no prerequisites for the following types of courses:

  • Entry level courses that assume no previous background or study, such as Spanish 1, 1A, or 10A.
  • Conversation courses in any language; 10A, B, C, D,E ;  12A,B,C ; 11A,11B ; 14A, 14B, 14C ; 15A, 15B, 16A, 16B

NOTE : Many courses do have advisories. Please check the college catalogue for information.

Beginning with registration for the Fall 2015 semester, there will be changes with French and Spanish registration for courses that have prerequisites. If you have acquired the prerequisite skills outside of CCSF, there are two ways of challening the prerequisite:

  1. Produce a transcript from another college with the equivalent course.
  2. Take the Placement Test, available online for most languages.

Please choose the appropriate language to learn what to do for your language.
