Placement and course selection

For all courses that require prior knowledge, it is compulsory that you take placement tests on the computer. This makes it possible to determine your current language level, which facilitates a decision about which course is most appropriate to you. The aim is to ensure that you benefit most from the course you take and that you make the best possible progress.

The tests assess the following language skills: listening, writing, reading, grammar and vocabulary. The tests determine your level according to the Common European Framework of Reference.
