Hi Ahmedeyab,

Although both words are correct, I would not recommend using them. The examiners will think you memorized an academic word list. Even native speakers would rarely use these words in a short essay.

Muchas gracias Adam! Entretenida y diferente esta lección, pero tendré que leer más poemas. Voy por Williams Shakespeare.

Hi Melody,

There are some proficiency tests you can take, like the Cambridge tests or the IELTS general, etc. These are expensive though. You can also go to a local language school and ask for a level check.
Hope this helps a little.
