Understanding your Spanish level

Your Spanish level is unique to you, your learning experience, and the way you use Spanish in your everyday life (if you do). Taking a Spanish test is an easy way to get an idea of your Spanish level, but it's important to recognize the limits of any test in measuring the full complexity of your individual profile. Drawing up a list of the things you want to be able to do in Spanish (making presentations, traveling abroad, reading books, etc.) can be another way of looking at your Spanish level. In addition to a Spanish test, a list of goals can become the foundation of your Spanish study plans going forward.

A quick way to check your Spanish level is to take a Spanish test online. These quizzes are usually free. If you need a Spanish language certificate for your work or studies, you will need to take a paid Spanish exam like the DELE. You can also ask someone who speaks Spanish well to help check your Spanish level, although if they are not a teacher, they will only be able to give you a rough idea.

There are many ways to measure your level in Spanish. The most obvious is to take a Spanish test, but there are several other methods as well. You can keep a learner journal in which you record your goals, studies, and successes. You can speak to a native Spanish speaker regularly and ask for their help in tracking your progress. Finally, you can take a Spanish course during which your teacher will measure your progress.

The CEFR is the most common standard for measuring levels in Spanish. It has 6 levels divided into 3 broad bands (A, B, C) from elementary to advanced. At the elementary level, you can speak in Spanish about everyday subjects. This level is sufficient for traveling to a Spanish-speaking country as a tourist. At the intermediate level, you can express doubts and concerns, tell stories, and make arguments, especially on familiar subjects. The intermediate level is sufficient for many jobs in Spanish. At the advanced level, you can communicate with ease in Spanish even if the subject is unfamiliar.

The best Spanish exam for you depends on your needs. If you're being asked to prove your Spanish level by an employer or an organization, usually they will specify which exam you need to take. The most frequently-recognized Spanish exams are the DELE, the SIELE, and the CELU. However, none of these exams may be right for you. They all cost money and must be scheduled months in advance. If you aren't required to take a standardized exam. the best Spanish test for you may be one of the free online options.
