Proficiency Tests

Measure your command of a language

Proficiency Tests

We provide the opportunity for you to test your proficiency level in various foreign languages. We have based this test on the standard grammar and vocabulary that you would find in any language-learning materials. We offer these tests for self-evaluation purposes only. You may find that your score on this test is not consistent with other tests you have taken. Transparent Language is solely responsible for the test content and we invite your feedback regarding the test design.

Unlike achievement tests or other kinds of tests, proficiency tests are not dependent on particular class content, course materials, or language software programs. Instead, a proficiency test is intended to measure your command of a language regardless of your background in that language.
