    Default libre/cuatrimestral

    Hola Gente!
    Como podria traducir libre y cuatrimestral en cuestion de materias cursadas en forma libre y cuatrimestral. La verdad es que no les doy mi version porque no tengo idea sobre todo con respecto a libre.

    gracias

    Hola Diegonel!

    Si es una materia que cursas libre, podría ser: 'studied without attending to classes', o directamente 'sat for the final test'.
    He visto por ahí la expresión 'challenge the course' pero creo que es usada cuando sumás puntos para evitar ir a clases, no porque tu lo elijas...

    Una materia que tiene una duración cuatrimestral sería: 'four-monthly subject'. No se si hay otra forma de decirlo.

    Espero que pueda servirte de ayuda.

    So, maybe a class that you can audit? Or some sort of independent study program?

    Or maybe a class that you can place out of by demonstrating proficiency on a placement test (or a proficiency test)?

    Could cuatrimestral refer to a school with trimesters?

    Diegonel: Are they classes that are both libre and cuatrimestral? Or are libre and cuatrimestral options for a given class?

    thanks for your help.

    Marialeck, how u doing!
    Look, this is a qualification record (with all the subjects and marks) that I am translating.

    This is the text:

    analisis matematico 8
    microeconomia 7
    etc
    etc

    Calificaciones:
    1-3 insuficiente 4-5 aprobado 6-7 bueno 8-9 distinguido 10 sobresaliente

    Regimen:
    2 libres 4 cuatrimestrales

    So what I thinks is that two subjects were passed on self- taught basis
    four subjects were passed on four-monthly basis

    This is the way I translated. What do you think?

    I think what you have is quite clear.

    Some other options are:
    independent study
    regular trimester course/class

    ¡Hola! // Hi!

    Me encantó la opción de Mariaklec: 'independent study'. // I loved Mariaklec's option: 'independent study'.

    ¿Sería correcto usar 'regular trimester class' para una matería que es cuatrimestral?

    ¡Gracias!
