Quickly and easily find out your German level with this free online A1-C2 German Language Placement Test

Whether you need to know your German proficiency level because you're trying to figure out what kind of German course level is right for you in a language school, or because you don't know how your foreign academic German level translates to the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR), or simply for fun, you've come to the right place with the quick, easy, and free Deutschable German Language Placement Test!

This is a powerful German level test that asks you a series of multiple choice questions in German to find out the best German placement for you. The questions in this test will vary in difficulty depending on how you answer - as does its length, as this placemen test for German language precislely narrows down your German level with each passing question.

One important thing to keep in mind here is that this test will give you your suggested "course level" - because it is a German language placement test. That means that the primary function of this German level test is to tell you what German class is best for your level of German proficiency.

So, in other words, if the Deutschable German language placement test tells you that your suggested German course level is B1.1, then you should sign up for a German class labelled B1.1. Your actual German proficiency level would be A2.2 (i.e. the German proficiency level right below level B1.1). If this test says you're A1.2, then you've most likely finished with German level A1.1 and should take an A1.2 course.

Because in this German level test we do away with listening and speaking skills, please take this into consideration when choosing a German course based on the results. If in doubt, it's best to err on the side of caution and take one German CEF level lower than indicated in this German language placement test. Ideally, your school would do another German level test prior to or during the first lesson. 

(Quick note: This free online German language placement test is NOT meant to be taken multiple times, i.e. to check your progress after taking a German course somewhere. This placement test for German language is just that: An initial placement. Once you've taken this German placement test, you'll already know some of the questions and it might skew the result of the German placement test.

I hope you enjoy this free online German placement test and if you have any feedback let me know anytime using form on the contact page.
