German Language Level Test Total tests taken so far: 15042. Average score: 35/70

We have designed this test to assess your present German level. You will be presented with up to 70 questions in sets of 10. You can answer as few sets as you like but the more questions you answer, the more accurately we can evaluate your current language level.

Test instructions

Questions cover a range of grammar and comprehension skills—including verb conjugation, prepositions, tense, etc.—and become progressively more difficult as you advance. Answers are presented in multiple-choice form. Choose the answer you believe to be correct for each question. Please do not guess as it might negatively influence your result. If you are unsure of a question, select “I don't know”.

After you have completed each set of 10 questions, you can request the next set by clicking “CONTINUE WITH 10 MORE QUESTIONS”. Or, if you want to end the test, click “Get My Test Results”. If you answer all 70 questions, you will only have the option to click “Get My Test Results” on the final page.

This will also be very useful for your German teacher if you decide to take a course with Language Trainers. (of course, you can also take your results and show them to any other German teacher too).
