<p>I'm kinda in the same situation as well. I didn't know there was a foreign language requirement so as a compulsary requirement at my highschool, I took 1/2 year French, 1/2 year Japanese in Year 9. So, I have only 1/2 year of a language, not even close to the full 2-3 years some colleges require.
So I was going to take the SATII Korean exam but some colleges told me that it would not be wise because it still shows the lack of my ability in foreign languages considering that I am of Korean ethnicity and that I speak Korean at times. They said it wouldn't matter whether or not I take the SATII Korean and ace it at 800, because they would know from my application that I'm Korean and living in an english speaking country which allows me to be billingual. I don't think they would take my SAT II korean as a supplement as a foreign language.
They said TOEFL would be the only language requirement. (and 4-5 years English, 3-5 years Maths at school.)</p>
<p>SO now, my plan now: is to take SAT II French exam. I only know the basic, and not fluent at all but I have 2 more years to learn it from a private tutor..my school won't let me take French as a curriculm because I didn't take it in year 10. </p>
<p>But nevertheless, some schools do not have a foreign language REQUIREMENT and most top schools regard foreign language as a recommended course to take for 2-3 years.
But then I guess these 'recommended' courses are nearly required since most applicants do take a foreign language.</p>
<p>I think in your situation, it won't hurt by sending in your SAT II Korean as supplement to your foreign language requirement but I don't think it will cover the WHOLE language requirement.
