Vietnamese Placement Testing

Honor Code

While taking any placement test, remember that you are subject to the Stanford Honor Code and Fundamental Standard.  Specifically, you are not permitted to receive outside assistance on these examinations.  "Outside assistance" means, among other things, the use of books, notes, dictionaries, grammar books, spell checkers, grammar checkers, translation tools, cutting and pasting foreign language items from the web, and composing items in writing before speaking.

It is very important that you do your best on this exam and that you do not receive any help with it. In order to make good judgments about your language placement in Stanford programs, we need good information about your level and knowledge.

Placement Test

The placement assessment for Vietnamese includes both written and oral components and takes place during a scheduled 60-minute one-on-one Zoom meeting with a Vietnamese instructor. Testing for Academic Year 2021-2022 will occur in the month of August by appointment. All testing should be complete by August 31, so students are asked to plan accordingly.  To request a placement test in Vietnamese, please email
