Listening tests for 11 year old

Enquiry: I'm teaching an 11 year old who came to live in this country in the past few years. She had no hearing at all prior to the age of nine and last year was fitted with a CI.

My problem is that her vocabulary is still pretty limited and I want to make sure that I'm measuring her listening rather than her language. Thanks
