    Re: English testing

    There are many standard tests - but for a quick assessment talk to them individually about familiar subjects (family, classroom objects, colors, native animals) and grade them 1 to 5 on how they sound to you.
    1 = unable to understand anything; 2 = got some idea but could not find words to answer; 3 = could make rudimentary answers to easy questions; 4 = answered most questions with some errors in grammar or pronounciation; 5 = could carry on a 5 minute conversation in English.
