FAQ: Language Test
A language test gives you a very good idea of your language skills. In addition, you can use the language test to track your learning progress. If you take our language test regularly, you can see whether your learning goals are being achieved and whether you are following a good learning strategy.
The result of the test is based on the typical levels for languages. Your level is between A1 and C2, where A1 corresponds to a beginner's level and C2 to the level of a native speaker. The following list gives you a compact overview of the different levels:
- A1 - Elementary Language Use I: You are able to understand simple everyday situations, introduce yourself and ask people simple questions, such as their age or where they live. You understand the answers when the other person speaks slowly and clearly.
- A2 - Elementary Language Use II: You are able to understand sentences about common topics and talk about familiar situations. You can also talk about yourself, for example about your background or your needs.
- B1 - Independent use of language I: You are able to understand the main points and context of conversations, talk about your personal interests, experiences or goals and cope with most situations when you are travelling.
- B2 - Independent use of language II: You can understand complex texts and lead discussions in your field. You can hold a normal conversation with native speakers and communicate spontaneously and fluently.
- C1 - Proficient use of language I: You can understand demanding scientific texts and express yourself fluently without having to think for a long time. In private as well as in professional everyday life, they can communicate and express themselves on complex issues without any problems.
- C2 - Proficient Use of Language II: You can understand everything you read or hear without any problems and you can also talk about complex topics and present reasons or meanings at a high level.

With the help of the language test, you can assess how well you have progressed in learning your foreign language. If you have improved by one level, your learning has been successful and you have improved in the use of your foreign language.
The main difference between a language test and a language quiz is its purpose. While a language test is specifically designed to determine your language level, a language quiz has the purpose to improve the language level. Another big difference between a language test and a language quiz is that a language test only shows your current language level, whereas a language quiz helps you to improve your language level.
Moreover, the contents of a language test consists of dialouges, and short texts that indirectly test grammatical rules, vocabulary and reading comprehension. A language quiz on the other hand consists of simple language games.
Normally, language tests cover grammar, vocabulary, spelling and reading comprehension. However, the questions on these areas are asked in short texts and dialogue sections. This way, the language level is assessed as closely as possible to actual language use with the help of a language test. The content of a language test is specifically designed to allow comparison between different test takers.
In order for the language test to give you the most meaningful result, you should ideally not prepare specifically for the language test. The only way to prepare for the language test is to use your foreign language regularly and learn vocabulary and grammar at the same time. However, the language test can be used as a tool to prepare for official languae certificates.
You can take a language test at any level. It is best to always take a language test before a new learning period and determine your language level in this way. This way you can take the test again at the end of your learning period and see how much you have improved.
