Placement tests

If you are unsure of your starting level try one of our placement tests.

We have placement tests available in the following languages:

  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Spanish

The French tests are online.  For all other languages you can print the tests to take in your own time.  Answer sheets are available enabling you to mark the test yourself.

For the German, Italian and Spanish tests, complete as much of the test as you can and stop when your answers become pure guesswork!

Once you have completed the test check your level by going to the answers page and marking your test.  Once you have a final score check this against the information at the bottom of the answer page.

If you are still unsure about your level, you can contact our language co-ordinators.  Details can be found on our staff pages.

If you have any problems with these tests, please Contact us .
