English Language Proficiency Level Test

Find out your level in less than 10 minutes! Answer as many of the questions below as you can, but without guessing or cheating! Otherwise the test will not be accurate. It is not an exam, so choosing the “don’t know” option is OK.

Note - The test is intended as a guide only. It will give you an idea of your level of proficiency in grammar, but does not take into account your capabilities as a speaker or previous contact with the language, vocabulary and slang. The guidelines assume no answers were guessed.
