Testing language aptitude and finding the right course!

Whether choosing a course or applying for a job: You often have to state how well you know a language.
To help with this, language grading tests are available on levels ranging from A1 to C2.
Level A1 is for beginners, while native speakers are on level C2.

The tests are free, you don’t need to register, and you’ll be given information and course recommendations on the spot.

Before you start the test, we’d like to give you some basic information about how to complete it: 

  • Use “ok and continue” to confirm your answer and proceed to the next question.
  • Use “next question” to proceed to the next question without answering.
  • Use “previous question” to go back a question.
  • All unanswered questions are marked as incorrect.

Note: When completing the test, please remember that the result cannot give a fully accurate assessment of your actual aptitude. The course recommendations are therefore indicative only. You can complete the grading tests A1 and A2 down below: Simply click on the test and off you go!
