Language requirements

For schools that have a minimum language requierment of two years: Do they mean that you must have two years of training before you apply? or do they mean that you must have two years of training before you start classes? Anyone know how much creedence an adcom gives to statements in your SOP that you intend to do a summer intensive before classes start?

Most of the schools I'm looking at that have language requirements just stipulate that you have to have reading proficiency in a foreign language in order to graduate. From what I've heard, this just means you have to take and pass an exam at some point. If you already know that language--or if you learn it on your own, say with Rosetta Stone--then it sounds like you don't have to take any classes in it at the school. If that's the case where you're applying, then mentioning your summer intensive course couldn't hurt.
