Mandarin level test
Unless you are a complete beginner, we usually ask you to take an initial level test
so we can prepare the right materials for you and plan the right course outline.
Our tests are multiple-choice tests - where necessary,
we will ask separately for additional writing samples or do a face-to-face or telephone oral test.
We are in the process of putting as many of our tests online which means
that you get the mark immediately and it is simple to compare yourself with others
(very important if you are planning to take a group course with colleagues
since we do not recommend classes with a wide range of levels).
General courses level
This is a purely diagnostic test. Please only answer the questions that you are sure about.
Since this is not an exam, please do not chance guess or use grammar books/dictionaries.
Please stop as soon as you find the questions overwhelmingly difficult.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Here are 30 short passages of Chinese with some words left out.
Choose the word or words from the five alternatives under each passage
which you think a Mandarin-speaking person would be most likely to use.
Please note: the questions and code in our online tests is copyrighted and
may not be copied without permission from London Chinese Language.
