How good is your Spanish? Why take our Spanish level test?
In words of the British Council “Languages are the bedrock of the world’s cultural heritage. Every language offers a rich and unique insight into different ways of thinking and living as well as into the history of the myriad of cultures and peoples across the globe”.
Did you know that more people speak Spanish than English? One of the great advantages of Spanish is the connectivity it offers to a wide range of countries and cultures.It’s the second-most widely spoken language in the world (after Mandarin Chinese). It is the official language in 22 countries and the second largest native language in the world, staggering 22 countries, spanning South, Central and North America, as well as Africa and Europe. It goes beyond any doubt that speaking Spanish helps companies do business in Latin America and Spain. Besides, Spanish is known for its fascinating culture, passionate people, delicious cuisine, colourful and lively flamenco dance and so much more.
Learning Spanish will give you acces to vast new world full of rich culture heritage. In case English is your first language or you mastery it, Spanish is one of the easiest languages to learn. This is because Spanish is a Romance language (it derives from Latin which is embedded in some of the most spoken languages of the world such as Portuguese or French) so it does many English words, called cognates. For example, chocolate, delicious, family, radio, centre, desert and so on (up to 20,000 Spanish-English cognates).

Now, you might be asking yourself how many levels there are. Or, what do they mean? We have carefully researched our language proficiencies to reflect the skill levels of official accreditation programs.The levels are mainly determined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). According to CEFRL (apart from being commonly used in Europe it is also valid worldwide)levels are defined in terms of “proficiency which allow learners’ progress to be measured at each stage of learning and on a life-long basis”. There is another standard for assessing foreign language proficiency: the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). In the end, both are used for testing and certification as well as, in language teacher training, curriculum development in textbooks, and development of assessment standards.The ACTFL Guidelines have had an increasingly profound impact on teaching and learning foreign languages in the United States for the past 25 years.
