Each section becomes progressively more difficult. To get a better idea of your level, and / or prepare for your training:
- Do not use a dictionary or work with another person.
- Do not answer randomly for questions where you have no idea. In such cases just don't answer.

At the end of the test, click the "Send" button and you will immediately receive an assessment of your level.
But even if it gives a fair indication of your level, this test only measures certain skills (reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar) and not others (oral comprehension and expression, pronunciation).
