Online placement test

A placement test assesses your current language abilities and indicates at which level you should continue your studies. You need to complete a placement test before you can join a group course to ensure you are learning in a homogeneous group.

We offer online placement tests for German, English, French, Spanish and Italian. For all other languages, you can contact us by telephone (+41 44 368 71 11) or using our contact form.

Please do not use a dictionary or other study aids. Please stop answering questions as soon as they become too challenging. Guessing the answers will distort the test result.

Language assessment

Get started!

Do you need proof of your language abilities? The AKAD language assessment allows you to evaluate your language abilities in German, English or French without having to wait for the next exam date.

How does the assessment work? Your oral and written abilities will be detailed separately on the certificate. The first stage is to take a computer-assisted test, followed by a review of your oral language skills with a mother-tongue teacher.

Duration: approx. 60 minutes
Fee: CHF 190.-

Register via email for the language assessment or arrange an appointment directly with our advisory team (tel.: 0800 71 11 11).
