The self-assessment below is meant to provide a picture of your speaking ability in Russian. Read the statements thoroughly and be honest about which are true of your ability to speak Russian right now. The self-assessment will provide an estimate of your proficiency level, along with some information about what that means. It will also allow you to read descriptions of the course levels at the School of Russian. Your results may be used as part of your course placement this summer, but keep in mind that this is one piece of the placement process. Other factors such as your experience with Russian and your entrance test scores will also play a role in your course placement.
For more information about language proficiency levels used by the School of Russian, visit the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages web site.
