How it works

During the test, you will answer questions involving oral and written comprehension and language structure. Each level comprises 15 questions.
You will be asked to choose the correct answer and sometimes write your answer. For the oral comprehension questions, you can listen to the audio extract as many times as you want. You must answer every question to get to the fifteenth and final question.
You will see your result on the last page of the test. At the very bottom of that page, depending on your results, a short text will either indicate the content corresponding to your level or suggest that you take a test at a different level.
