How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I think it depends on how you define intermediate and what school you are planning on applying to. For the top 10-20 colleges, it probably wouldn’t be that impressive unless you get some kind of scholarship because of this language. The top colleges receive a lot of applicants who gets a 5 (full mark) on AP or 800 on SAT foreign language exams. It also kind of depends on your ethnic origin, if you are Chinese, colleges tend to de-value it because it’s easier for you to learn a language that you’re very familiar with. So I would recommend learning about Spanish, Latin or French if you have some basic knowledge on it. College board offers some scholarships if you do well on the exams for Spanish and Latin. I’m not sure if they do with Chinese.
Assuming you are mostly self taught and not professional tutors it is generally a reconigized EC if not amazing sorely due to the fact that top 25 schools have a whole lot of impressive feats like owning a business etc but for top 100 schools so U Oregon Tenneese will be impressed then it is more remarkable but not outstanding assuming of course you did not learn it due to family. And if you are going into International relation/buisness good job! Though ethnicity will be considered as Jessie said.
