Evaluating your English Ability

Please read the following descriptions of English proficiency. When complete, please choose which level best represents your skills.

Level 1: Post-Beginner – Able to understand a few everyday expressions of simple functions in known situations, and can produce some single words and set phrases in response, or can make requests using a single word plus ‘please’, (for example ‘Salt, please’).

Level 2: Elementary - Able to understand many simple expressions of everyday basic functions in familiar situations and sometimes grasp what the basic topic of a conversation in English is. Can produce understandable questions and answers involving information above basic (e.g. Not only ‘What is your name?’ but ‘What does your father do?’) even if structures often go wrong and words are not known.

Level 3: Pre-Intermediate – Able to understand the gist of a commonplace conversation in English, though not in detail, and can produce English well enough to take part if spoken to carefully. Can also initiate conversation by asking questions on a range of everyday topics (e.g. sport, or food) and can perform most everyday social and practical functions (e.g. buying things in shops) well enough to survive comfortably.

Level 4: Mid-Intermediate – Able to understand the gist of a commonplace conversation involving fluent speakers, provided that some allowances are made, or occasional help given. Can produce well enough to make substantial relevant contributions (e.g. a story clearly related to the topic) and to get full and satisfactory information from other speakers by questioning as necessary. Is functionally competent for all everyday negotiations except where completely unpredictable problems arise.

Level 5: Upper Intermediate – Able to understand well enough to hold a continuous conversation with a native speaker, even where the speaker does not, or cannot, adapt his/her language to a foreigner. Can produce well enough to initiate new topics, change the subject, and generally take part in the management of the conversation rather than merely responding. Can manage all normal life functions with ease, and cope linguistically with completely new situations (e.g. a negotiation in a shop not going according to expectations).

Level 6: Advanced – Able to understand native speakers of everyday standard English, even when not being directly addressed, and can therefore take part in normal interaction on almost the same terms as a native speaker. Can produce speech fluent enough to convey feeling, to argue and maintain a point of view, or to convey complex information (e.g. explaining a process) to a listener.

Level 7: Proficient - Native speaker standard in every skill, with two major differences: a) in understanding, a lack of long familiarity with English culture (e.g. television programs) may make some accents, dialects and cultural references less accessible than they would be to a native speaker; b) on the other hand, a Proficient student may well be more at home – in all skills – with the more academically educated kind of English used in colleges, textbooks etc., than is normal with native speakers taken as a whole.


Based on the description above, please check which ability level best describes your English skills.
