This is definitely the best free online test I've ever seen, to assess one's English language level.

Exclamation Attention: There are listening parts included, so you have to use earphones or speakers while taking the test.

They divided the highest level (C2) into two, and my result is C2 - Advanced, which is the 8th level out of the 9. (See the image below.)

What is yours?

ZZZZZ

Ah, on my second I got the highest. I took the test again, as I realized that I had answered one of the questions illogically. The second test brought mostly different questions, and I replied the ones I'd been asked on my first test with selecting the same options. I wasn't asked the question that I had answered inanely. :p

I used to be pretty advanced but now I got rusty.

Eh, they ask for my phone number. Hopefully they won't subscribe me to some magazine or spam me with advertisements...

^ I took the risk. Even though their address ends with ".com" (.edu or .org would seem more trustable); I get the impression that it is a trustable site.

"Only" £10 for an advanced test report. Seems like it's a private rather than a state-owned English school. They have to make money.

^ Advanced test report? Come on, who needs that... I've tried many free online tests like this, and I can confidently say that this was the best one.

I didn't buy one. They were going to send it to me by mail rather than just giving me a document to download. It's 10 pounds thrown out for nothing...

^ I would only give that money for a full test, that includes writing and speaking sections as well. Oh and having at least 80-100 questions is a must for a virtually precise assessment.

The test had just enough subjective question to make it completely useless IMHO.

A wise old man once told me: "Don't wait for anyone to give you a pat on your back.....give it to YOURSELF". After many moons, I have to say he was damn right. I got straight "A+s " in English in high school and yes, I am very advanced in our beautiful lingo.......I mean, I'd necessarily have to be because I have been teaching ESOL English in the E.U. for the past 25 odd years !!!!!!Approve

^ I'd say you're already C2 (Very Advanced) in English; as it is the standart level of the educated natives (of any language). C2 is endless though. Perhaps a person with a photographic memory can reach the maximum of the level C2. Though, s/he has to do lots of research for the earlier English usage. Even then, some things may not be found; and the furthest you could reach can come from the dusty pages of history. And I believe that some things just evaporated. It is said that William Shakespeare's vocabulary range in English was 69.000-70.000 words (and he only used less than 40.000 of them in his works). That's gotta be a big challenge!

I gave my phone number, as you can guess. Nothing unpleasant, or to put it better, nothing has happened as of yet that I'm aware of, because of it.

it is so standard I can tell you it's "standard", not "standart" Wink. "Standart" would actually be German for "way of standing", though one would usually say "Art zu stehen" in German

LOL

^ Ah sure, my Turkish interfered. Standart is the Turkish of standard, also. BTW, my mind can sometimes be unpleasantly strange. I literally wrote "beuty" instead of "beauty" for a couple of years. I was a B2 then. Quite shameful, I'd say. Ouch
