Many junior high and high schools require students to take a foreign language in order to broaden their horizons and learn about different cultures. Given that the United States has a large Hispanic population, more and more people are studying Spanish in order to communicate better and get more job opportunities. To teach Spanish in a Michigan school, prospective educators must pass the MTTC Spanish Exam.
The MTTC Spanish Test consists of 80 multiple-choice questions and two short-answer items.
