Thank you for choosing to study French with IWLP. 

Students with any prior knowledge of French must take this test. This includes anyone who has taken an exam at school (GCSE or similar), studied French without taking an official exam (eg years 7-9 in the UK), spent time in a French-speaking country, or even with a relative/friend who speaks French... This is to ensure that you are placed in the best module for you. Sometimes students from particular linguistic backgrounds are able to join the stage 2 module and progress more quickly. Even if you feel you have forgotten most of what you used to know, it will come back more quickly than you think.

The placement test is made up of 3 sections:

  1. Personal information (including linguistic background)
  2. Self assessment of language knowledge
  3. Knowledge test 

Complete sections 1 and 2 fully, complete as much of section 3 as you can. 

Do not seek any help to complete the test, otherwise you may end up being placed in the wrong module.
