Test your French knowledge with a quick online quiz!
Hi people, just sat the France Langue online test. They seem to be a small/medium sized language school in France and offer a short online test.
I got 65%, B2 level, but I think in reality I am B1. My listening and speaking is worse than my reading and writing.
I think it is pretty accurate, for assessing reading and writing anyway!
Let me know what you think or what you get!
PS, they only grade up to C1!
i got a 45%--B1 level! i think that's pretty accurate. i mean, i started learning french when i was 11 but i didn't pay attention too much until i was 13! so i've only been learning it for about 2 years!
Yes well, even if it is too simple, I don't think it is massively off scale for reading and writing.
I think a serious test will have four different levels for reading, listening, writing and speaking.
Oh hello again. Yes, I know I wouldn't pass a proper B2 test, but it was still quite challenging. There were some words and tenses that I haven't got comfortable with yet.
I meant it's normal to have different levels for all four skills. We don't learn all the four needed skills at the same time, at least not as much as we should. A serious test will give you a (potentially) different level for each four. You're then free to give either the best, the worst or the average of the four when presenting your language ability (or even break it down in detail), but the careful and humble person will give the worst of the four.
You only pass the test for the European CEFR exams if you get over 50% overall and over 50% in each area too. I'm aiming for the C1 next year. Don't see much point in the lower exams. C1 is second hardest.
I got 90% = C1 but I think it just describes mostly how well I know the grammar. In general I would say I'm at the level B1 except when it comes to speaking which drops it to A2. I have studied French till B1 and now I have been training with Duolingo for almost an year.
Very nice test anyway, thanks a lot for sharing!
Surprised to see such a big gap between grammar and speaking! Yes, it is a short test, but for me I felt it wasn't far off, considering I feel I am studying French grammar at a level that I never studied English!
Hello! Thank you for the link, it's always good to test yourself using various sources.
Unfortunately I think this test is exactly what it says, "more recreational" rather than anything else, and having scored 90% = C1 (basically got 2 wrong out of 20) I can say without any doubt that it is very inaccurate, at least for those levels. I have finished my DL tree and the questions seemed easy, about same difficulty as what you'd find here and we know that Duo does not get far from intermediate. I know I'm more of a B1-B2 in reading comprehension and it's all downhill from there in speaking/writing/listening. Also, considering the source (arranging courses with this organisation) I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to give users a little push to encourage them to go forward.
Good news, for a far more detailed testing, I have found this http://apprendre.tv5monde.com/fr/apprendre-francais/accueil-tcf
There are 40 multiple choice questions in each test, with sections covering both reading and listening and you can review your answers at the end. :)
Thank you for the test!! I was starting to question if I was good at French or not.
70% whoa what... I'm definitely not B2, more like something between A2 and B1 but I got a good score because I know 3 other romance languages so well, I still can't have a conversation in French but yeah I understand that the test was more recreational than pedagogical like it was said there.
just did the test,35% A1 disgusted with myself,I know I can hold a good conversation though which is my main reason for learning so looks like I need to brush up on the grammar,thanks for the link though great fun
Honestly, I just did the Duolingo test/quiz and got 1.7 out of 5. But I know I can get up to 5 quickly. Sometimes the test just doesn't ask the right questions! :p
I'm a B1! Honestly I found the quiz a little weird because it just gave the test of tenses. I liked it but I wished it had more variations. I find knowing a language has to do with proper use of words with the combination of tenses. More and more practice for me!
Yes. Beginnner's Luck :-) I guessed the answers. It's not because I know the answers for sure. Your discussions are very helpful. Thank you very much for sharing tips n links. CHEERS! ! :-)
I got 70 %, which is really better than I think I am. I am now a very fluent reader of French, but the details of grammar often pass me by.
Well done for beating me! I am reading about grammar and tenses as we speak! Need to improve!
I got 55%! Grammar it's not my fav. part of languages lol. Thanks for the link :)
Thanks for the links. I got 50% which makes me seem better than I am, but some were lucky guesses from context ;)
I got a 60% without resorting to a dictionary. Not bad, eh? :) I've been learning French since I was 13 but sadly I don't practice as much as I should ever since I picked up other languages.
Been learning French for some time, but I had taken only Spanish and some German in high school and middle school. I only had begun learning French when in college. Im in the end of my third year now.
I passed with 95, makes sense because I'm amazing at writing and reading. Im progressing with speaking, but as always that must improve.
Merci bien d'avoir partagé ce petit examen !
