Feel free to talk to an instructor who will ask: where you studied; how many years and at what level; your goal in studying world language; and level-appropriate questions in the language.
For a placement test in a world language, see a world language instructor.
Ask for permission to sit in on any class for a day or two.
Get the syllabus, then go to the text website or instructor website and see what the class covers. Do you know this material?
