On a whim, I took the Göthe Institut's computerized placement test. It has 28 "cloze" questions, and I could make out the gist of most of the sentences, but I've never learned any grammar whatever. I was curious what the Computer would think of my fake German. The Computer decreed that I answered 11 questions correctly, and that I should therefore book a course at the "Basic III" level. Funky.
