This paper presents a self-assessment platform for Latvian language learners in the breakthrough (A1) and Waystage (A2) levels. The self-assessment platform contains three types of exercises (typing, inflection and gap filling) based on error analysis of the Latvian Language Learner corpus (LaVA). All exercises are automatically generated based on data from multiple corpora. The automatically generated exercises are useful not only for learners outside of classroom or even outside of any formal education setting, but also for educators and authors of learning aids. Currently the self-assessment platform is tailored for language learners at the beginner level, but it can be easily extended for more advanced levels. The self-assessment platform is freely available online (http://uzdevumi.riks.korpuss.lv/en/) and the interface is translated in two language – Latvian and English.
