Understanding your Mandarin Chinese level

It is important to consider your goals when trying to understand your level in Chinese. While taking a Mandarin Chinese test or two can be a helpful benchmark, in the end, it is what you want to be able to do in Mandarin that matters. Do you want to travel to China? Study in university? Work in Chinese? In addition to taking this quiz, we recommend that you make a list of things you aim to learn to do in Chinese and use that list to assess your own progress toward those goals.
