What's my level?



If you don't know what your level is you can do a test to find out. This type of text will tell you if you are:

A1 (beginner)
A2 (elementary)
B1 (intermediate)
B2 (upper intermediate)
C1 (advanced)
C2 (advanced +)


Placement tests you can buy


The Oxford online placement test is a good place to do for this. You can do a test which concentrates on your:
Use of English
Listening skills
You will be given a score for both parts of the test and told your overall level at the end. These tests only cost about E3 each so they are well worth the money:
Another site is the CLA prototype page where you can see what the language centre computer test looks like and get an idea of the type of exercises, timing etc. but this is designed to show you the structure of the test NOT to provide practice..

This is a site that has been developed by Cambridge English to help you improve your written English. You can upload your own texts and be given a grade and suggestions as to how you can improve. :-) (Do not be put off though if the site rates your language as being lower than you think it should be)

Online Correction
This is similar but it limits itself to correcting errors. You can choose the "English" you are writing in, however.
