The DIALANG test is a language test developed by multiple European universities. The test does not replace advice given after the office hour, however; it is merely for your own reference. The test indication is described in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This is a reference framework developed by the Council of Europe that provides a basis for comparing language proficiency levels and interpreting test scores.

Self-evaluate your language skills tool

The 'Self-evaluate your language skills' tool helps you to assess your level of proficiency according to six reference levels described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
