Spanish: Special Writing Characters

Spanish Characters

The Writing section of the Avant Spanish Heritage Language (SHL) Test will display a character-selection box as shown to the right.

The Testing Coordinator should ensure that the test takers will know how to switch to the special input system for the Writing section of the test.

Instructions for activation of the special input systems are available through the computer’s operating system Help option.

Search for “language” or “input language” and read the instructions related to adding an input language and/or using the Language bar (Windows) or Menu bar (macOS).
