If fellow language learners do not know this already:
Leipzig vocabulary tests
It is not clear, but may well be the case, that they directly applied to other languages
research on a limited number of languages, the chief of which was English. How accurately do
the test results indicate one's vocabulary range, especially when regarding such non-
Western European languages as Arabic, Russian, and Japanese? Perhaps for now, you have to ask
a language nerd.

Yep. these tests got viral here last year :) Patrickwilken found them, and then they were discussed in other threads, too.
Basically they often test obscure meanings and assume linear, formal learning.
