Proof of English-language competence

New Digital Level Tests
We will be offering flexible digital level tests for our English courses starting 4 July 2018.

Advantages of digital testing

You may take these exams anytime and anywhere before course registration closes. Moreover, you will receive your test results immediately which will allow you to sign up for your preferred classes faster.

How to use the results

Whatever result you get indicates your current level. This means that you should sign up for a course with a target level one level higher than your results. Thus, if your result is below B1, you should sign up for a B1 target level class; if your result is B1, you should sign up for a B2 target level class; if your result is B2 or higher, you should sign up for a C1 target level class.

How to do the test

The level testing is done on the Pearson website and costs 7 EUR for the basic option and 9.50 EUR for the premium option.

Option 1: Placement Profile (Basic Placement Test)

Option 2: Placement Speaking (Premium Placement Test incl. DAAD)

This test evaluates your reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. It can be used to assess your level for a language course and provides a comprehensive analysis of your skills. This placement test can also be used to obtain a DAAD certificate.
