How good is your English?

We are pleased that you are thinking of coming to EuroMondiale Language Centre for English lessons.  We want to make sure that you have the best teaching that we can give you and that also means making sure that you are in the right class.

This Level Assessment test will show us how well you understand grammar and how good your vocabulary is.  When you meet us we will discover how well you can speak - often not as good as your understanding to begin with!

There are 40 questions in this test and you must answer them all.  Please DO NOT use a dictionary or other help (especially do not ask a friend to help) because we need to know how good YOU are!

Good luck!
