Listening Level Test

About The Listening Test

  • There are six sound files to listen to. Each file contains a very short conversation. There are four questions on each part.
  • Listen to part 1, then answer the first four questions. Then, listen to part 2, answer the next four questions, and so on.
  • You can listen to the files more than once if you need. However, try NOT to listen to the files more than 3 times. The test is here to find your natural listening level. Ideally, you should listen only once or twice.
  • You will get your results after you have answered all the questions.
