Online Preliminary English Level Test

Online Preliminary English Level Test

The purpose of this test is to indicate your level of English before you complete your Enrolment Form. Please answer the questions without help, so that the information on your enrolment form helps us to understand your needs accurately. You will have another (different) test on the day of your arrival and a personal meeting with a teacher in order to check your level and to decide on the right class for you. (Please note this is for guidance only, and will not be considered a proof of level for a GSV (General Student Visa) application.) Try to complete this test in 30 minutes, and note how many minutes you take.
