Thank you for choosing our online placement test to determine your current language level. This service is without any engagement and offered free of charge.

The test places learners from A1 Starter (Breakthrough) to B2 Upper-Intermediate (Vantage). Your personal test result can be useful for helping you find the right level group for your language skills. Therefore, do not be too concerned, if there some or indeed many questions for which you do not know the answer. Simply give it your best shot.

Please enter your name and address in the designated boxes. This will allow us to send your personal test score out to you, along with the corrections of your answers. Please also let us know, if you would like us to contact you with a personal language course offer. If you prefer to get in touch with us directly, you might find our contact form helpful to specify your query.

Please note:

Do plan for enough time to answer all the questions at a stretch. The test has to be completed in one piece, because your answers cannot be stored on your computer.
