Do you want to find out how proficient you are reading English?
Measure and improve your English proficiency levels by repeated and regular short tests using the 'ESL Test' English as a Second Language (ESL) app. Your confidence will increase when you see your ESL Test scores improve over time.
ESL Test measures your proficiency in the English language. Your scores estimate proficiency as follows:
1. score 0 to 2 - beginner's level. Perhaps you can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. You can introduce him/herself and others, and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows, and things he/she has. Perhaps you can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly, and is prepared to help.
2. score 3 to 5 - elementary level of proficiency. You can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). You can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. You can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment, and matters in areas of immediate need.
3. score 6 to 10 - pre-intermediate level of proficiency. 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 describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes, ambitions, and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
4. score 11 to 15 - intermediate level of proficiency. You can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. You can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. You can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
5. score 16 to 18 - upper intermediate level of proficiency. You can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. You can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. You can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. You can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors, and cohesive devices.
6. score 18 to 20 - you can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. You can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. You can express him/herself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in the most complex situations.
