Test Your English Level (Quiz)

Greetings, Magooshers! I’ve already discussed several ways to be sure you are ready to begin TOEFL study. Another good way to know if you are ready to study for the TOEFL (or take it) is to test your overall knowledge of English.

I have created a 20-question quiz to test your knowledge of English grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure. After you select an answer, you’ll be told whether you are correct or incorrect. You will also be shown the wrong answers, with an explanation of why each of them is wrong. Finally, at the end of the quiz, you will be told which English level you are at: Master, Advanced, High Intermediate, Intermediate, Low Intermediate, High Beginner, or Beginner.

Each question also lists its key vocabulary words. All key vocabulary words in the quiz come from the “Common Deck” of Magoosh TOEFL Flash Cards. Study those common cards before the quiz for better learning and better results.

Practice for your TOEFL exam with Magoosh.

Also, remember, this is not a graded quiz. Don’t feel bad if your score falls below “Master” or even below “Advanced.” This quiz is simply a tool to help you know your level and look for the best ways to improve. Enjoy!
