Text Analyzer

Text Analyzer is a free online app that teachers can use to rate the difficulty level of a text in English according to the Common European Framework, or CEFR Levels. Moreover, this tool has other functions such as generating a suggested vocabulary list and directing you to an online dictionary to show you the meaning of said list of words. You just need to copy and paste the text you wish to analyze and Text Analyzer will do the rest for you.

Evaluation: Text Analyzer is a very simple and useful tool that teachers can use to determine the approximate level of proficiency that the text is suitable for, thus preparing better class activities for their students. The results you get will be more accurate when analyzing texts of over 50 or so words. The only drawback is that it only works with texts in English.

Cost: Free
