How can I measure my progress in learning the language?

If you want to learn English, measuring progress in language learning is essential to maintain motivation and adjust study strategies. Fortunately, there are multiple methods and specific tests to assess language skills in areas such as listening, reading, writing and speaking.


Informal Evaluations

Self appraisal

Keeping a daily record of activities and achievements can help visualize progress and identify areas that need more work.

Use checklists based on CEFR descriptors to self-assess skills in real communication situations.


Evaluation Practices


Continuous assessment

Participating in language exchanges, online classes or conversation groups provides constant and practical feedback in a real environment.

Writing essays, recording presentations, or participating in debates can be a great way to evaluate progress. These activities can be reviewed in person or with the help of tutors to obtain detailed feedback.


Specific Skills Tests

Listen to podcasts, watch movies or series in the target language and then answer questions about the content. Platforms like TED Talks with subtitles can be helpful.

Read articles, books or any material written in the language and then make summaries or answer comprehension questions.

Practice with native speakers.

Write blogs, keep a diary in the language, or participate in discussion forums. Feedback from native speakers or teachers is essential to improve accuracy and fluency.


Assessment Integration

Linguistic Portfolio

Maintaining a portfolio with samples of work in all areas (writings, recordings, exams) can show progress over time.

Including reflections on what was learned, challenges faced, and goals achieved helps consolidate learning and plan future objectives.



Measuring progress in language learning involves a combination of formal and informal methods. Standard assessments provide an objective measurement of proficiency level, while informal, ongoing assessments provide a dynamic view of skill development. Using a variety of tools and techniques allows for comprehensive assessment, ensuring that learning is effective and motivating.
