We often get requests for a way to test your level. Now you can with our new language proficiency test. It’s a fun way to measure your ability in a number of different languages.
So far the test offers English for Spanish, French, Russian, German and Portuguese speakers as well as Spanish, French, Russian, German and Portuguese for English speakers. If it’s popular, we may add more language pairs in the future.
Give it a try and let us know how you did! Better yet, if you like it, please make sure to share it with your friends on your favourite social networks.
It says i know 22,000 words and that i am at about advanced 1. This sounds about right (i would put me one step lower perhaps intermediate because i guessed at some of the grammar).
This tests reminds me of something i already know-- I need to make more words known (i mainly LingQ and rarely put a word as known, even cognates). And occassional grammar work would be somewhat beneficial.
Really good idea, it would be nice to have this for Japanese and other languages indeed ! However I found some questions to be a bit weird : In addition to English I also did test my French (my mother tongue) as if I was a native English speaker and even if I made no mistakes, sometimes the questions felt a bit odd and unnatural.
Intermediate 1 for German for me. Es war mein lieblings fach in der schule aber…that was 30 years ago. It estimated 7,000 words which is a little ambitious for me after 30 years but maybe if I studies for a few months I’d get back to that level.
Good fun though, thanks.
It is a nice test, perhaps is too short.
I just did and I got intermediate 1 (5000 words) for English and advanced 1 (22000 words) for Portuguese. By the way, both results are wrong. I found that some questions were a bit strange, there were even one that 3 out of 5 answers were indeed correct for Portuguese.
Nice new addition to the web site. Many people ask in the forum about their level. I did the test for Russian and it gave an accurate result. Perhaps adding a “not sure” answer will give more accurate results (remove points from guessing).
