Where Can I Take A French Placement Test?

July 1, 2017


A French placement test for what purpose? When you say 'placement' it is implied that you have a specific course, class or classification framework in mind. For Duolingo for example, you would have to erase all your progress in the course and re-enroll in it to be offered the placement test. For other purposes you have to search for tests used by a specific organisation.

If you just want a quiz that tests your knowledge of French you can still search the internet for free mock tests, for example those used by universities or other organisations that provide language qualifications. See their entry requirements for a course and take the mock test to see whether you could qualify.

A test that gives you a good idea what you level is on the CEFR system is this: Good luck!

I just started French and it didn't give me the option to do a placement test. Or else I mistakenly picked the wrong option. Either way, I would like to be able to go back and take a placement test.

I don't have any progress to erase, I just want to do a placement test so I don't have to start from scratch. Je suis Canadien, functionallement bilingue en français, mais j'aimerais pratiquer un peu, (particulièrement les nuances qu'on prononce pas.)
