For those who want to take a quick test to see at which level around you are, we recommend the quick language tests for English, German, French, Italian and Spanish at http://www.sprachtest.de or http://www.turkishlanguagecenter.com for Turkish.

These tests are not sufficiant for us. The reasons are: Tests basically only give you approximate values. So that they don't completely lose their meaning, factors of time and spontaneity are playing an important role.
