Test your Spanish proficiency level

Here's a good (free) test (it does other languages too).

I got 39/70, which is classed as intermediate. I'm getting there, slowly. Definitely something I'll come back to, to see if I've improved.

Intermediate Level Description: You can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. You can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. You can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. You can also describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes & ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans. Equivalent to a B1.

What did you get? :)

Edit: Here are some listening tests from the same website!!!

I got 31. Verbs are my weakest area. I did not understand vocabulary in 20+ questions.


Well done!! Yeah same; had to click "I don't know" for a few questions. Also, I'm not sure whether something should be past or past continuous; it's not always clear from the context, for me. But I guess there's more grammar info I haven't learned yet.



Yeah, subjunctive mood, some tenses are still fuzzy to me. I got my habia, hubo, hay, habré -as all straighten out, but all the vaya, haya, ...etc still have not sunk in.

I think Duolingo can get you only so far. I need to start reading some novels and translate parts/grammar I don't understand.

Duolingo vocabulary is limited. My "Words" count shows 2690, but I found that on this test, there were a lot of words that I have not seen before.

I think to move past the beginner/intermediate level, one would need to build the vocabulary to around 10,000 words (not counting conjugations). JMHO.


I got 54, also Intermediate.


That is great!


Did you make the quiz of duolingo too and if yes, with which result?


I haven't done a progress test in a while but when I did I got 5.00/5.00. I don't know if I'd score so highly now though.


That is great , my quiz results are bad. :-( On languagetrainers i am intermediate.


Mine was only ~2.1 before I did the reverse tree - I'd suggest practising more on that because it's harder and it forces you to learn more Spanish. That's how I jumped form that to 5.


o.K. thank you, i agree with that opinion.

Intermediate, 43/70.


I have been studying Spanish for two years now, purely on my own. Languagetrainers gave me a 58, upper intermediate. https://www.cervantes.to/cgi-bin/test-2011.pl just now gave me a C1 , http://leveltest.cambridgeinstitute.net/index.php/en/en-test-espannol a 78 (B2.II), while https://www.lengalia.com/index.php?id=114L=2 (particularly hard with long audios spoken by natives in natural speed) a C1.
It is particularly funny that Duolingo gives me a 64% Spanish fluency. At first I was angry, now simply I am amused.


Pre intermediate. How depressing.


I am also intermediate. Clearly need to work on verb tenses!


10 out of 70, but I've only been studying about a month.


That's really good! Since you took it so early on in your learning, you now have another way to test your progress throughout. :)


got 36. Intermediate


i probably would have gotten a good score the questions on it weren't that hard.. maybe "borderline advanced" is a good way to rank me?


take a look at my profile..


37 which made me feel like I’m making progress.
