The online language assessment assesses your language skills in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The OLS language assessment evaluates four skills:
- Grammatical competence: the knowledge of and ability to use the grammatical resources of the language.
- Lexical competence: both the knowledge of and ability to use grammar and lexical items (words, stock phrases and idiomatic expressions).
- Listening comprehension: the ability to receive and process a spoken message produced by one or more speakers.
- Reading comprehension: the ability to understand and handle written texts.
The assessment consists of 55 questions and takes approximately 30 to 35 minutes. Results are saved and the assessment can be taken in several separate stages. The assessment is adaptive and uses a smart and progressive methodology: the difficulty of the questions is based on the answers to previous questions, so that your linguistic ability can be measured with a progressively increasing degree of precision. Thus, the higher your level is, the more precise your evaluation is as the questions refer to more specialised themes.
