I am a native speaker of, or have not formally studied Spanish or Portuguese. How should I handle the language evaluation?

We suggest one of these options: 1) Contact the foreign language department at your college or university to arrange a language-proficiency evaluation. The person who evaluates your proficiency will be your language recommender; or 2) Ask a supervisor who has witnessed your use of the language in question in the workplace to be your language proficiency evaluator.

We prefer whenever possible that the language recommendation come from a faculty member experienced in producing this type of evaluation.
