The Berlitz Level Test

The multiple choice test is intuitive for the user. You should answer every question. Points are not deducted for an incorrect answer however any unanswered question will be marked as "incorrect".

Test length is about 30-35 minutes and the results are displayed on the screen and sent to the user’s email address as soon as the test is finished. A copy of the test results is also sent to the Language Center selected at the registration.

ASSESSMENT: This is the Berlitz level at which the test taker is assessed.
