Experience GTEC CBT

By level

On this learning site, you can experience questions that match CEFR “A2-1”, “A2-2” and “B1” levels.

What is CEFR?
GTEC CBT measures English communication ability in accordance with CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
CEFR, an international standard used to evaluate communication ability in languages used around the world, provides can-do statements for what learners should be able to do with the respective language. The test questions of GTEC CBT were developed based on careful analysis of CEFR can-do statements in the preliminary stage, thus the test results from GTEC CBT accurately reflect the communication ability specified in CEFR.
