If I am a native speaker of a language other than English, do I have to fulfill the Language Requirement?

Every student must study some language while at Yale. In fact, if your secondary school work was not conducted entirely in your native language, you might still be required to take a placement exam to demonstrate your ability in the language. Once you have demonstrated your proficiency level, you could take two semesters of a new language, or, if you are not a native speaker of English, you could fulfill the requirement by taking one of the English courses listed in the distributional requirements.
