Recently I came across a website of language proficiency for French, I think this is a good idea for people to know their language level; in addition, it can assist in one's language learning especially after one is aware of where he/she is and for.

By self-assessment, I mean it can stimulate people to move on before one is qualified/ prepared for any official test/ accreditation test. It's handy and economic.

Is there any such website for English? And other languages? Thanks in advance.

You could try finding past papers e.g. for the Cambridge Proficiency exam (an exam a lot of native speakers would fail, were they to take the test, by the way - it's quite heavy going). has a sample test (with answers, so you can see how you do).

Hope this helps!
