Is the knowledge of two foreign languages is the necessary requirement for entering college?

  1. Most of the colleges require the knowledge of the additional foreign language, in event your major is linguistics. Drake University, Grinnell College, Simpson College and some other private schools may not require their students to know the second language right away they have graduated from school.
    You need to check out the requirements of the college you want to go to. Take care and good luck to you!

  2. Usually the universities require a student to study languages for two years, not that they need you to know two languages. You may not know a foreign language to be accepted in the university, but you will have to know it for the successful graduation.
    Thus, it can be better to learn a language in High School because it will be easier for you then.

  3. No, it is not a necessary requirement. Moreover, any community college will accept you without the additional language. Colleges require students to take classes in one foreign language, but usually not two of them at the same time.
    You simply need to find out what are your college’s requirements before applying for admission.

  4. The classes of the second foreign language taken in HS is a necessity only for entering a few of the universities. I recommend you to use this web site www.collegeboard.org.
    You can check the criteria for enrolling any university there.

  8. I have never come across any college that required the knowledge of two languages before the admission. I know only the colleges that need two years of one language.
