You know already some Indonesian and want to find out whether you classify as a beginner or intermediate learner? We have the right tools for you.
But also when you are already a seasoned speaker of Indonesian with a high level of mastery in the Indonesian language (bahasa Indonesia), our proficiency tests can help you to determine your level of mastery and expertise in Indonesian according to the CEFR scale. CEFR is widely acknowledged as the international standard for describing language ability.
As a first step we advise you to take the CEFR self-assessment test. Here you can easily test yourself whether you are a beginner (A1-A2), an intermediate (B1-B2), or an advanced learner (C1-C2) of Indonesian.
Once you have established your approximate proficiency level using the CEFR descriptors and/or the self-assessment test, you can use the following tests to establish your proficiency level.
For Beginners to Intermediate Learners (A1 to B1)
Take this test to find out your current proficiency level in the Indonesian language.
Time yourself. You must complete the test within 8 minutes without any assistance.
For Advanced Learners (B2 to C2)
Note that the following test only examines your reading skills. Before you start the test, get a stop watch ready. You must complete the test within 15 minutes without any help. No dictionaries are allowed.
We are currently developing tests to assess your listening competence. These will be uploaded here shortly.
The above tests were developed by Prof. Uli Kozok from the Indonesian Language Program of the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
