Test Structure

Adaptive multiple choice questions to estimate level

Open-ended questions to provide a detailed language profile

Optional reading and listening modules to test comprehension


Effective speech in the workplace and at school is not just about correct grammar and high level words. We use naturally spoken responses to test for range of vocabulary, accuracy, fluency, and pronunciation. The questions are about daily life, experiences, and opinions.


Almost all jobs, and certainly all academic work, requires writing. Our test examines clarity, vocabulary, frequency of spelling and grammatical errors, and composition flow of an open answer. Questions ask test takers to respond to familiar or unfamiliar topics, and see how well they can express themselves.


More important than the ability to read is the ability to comprehend and analyze. Our test assesses the ability to understand what is written and extract messages from text relevant to your needs.


Being able to understand what is being said in a meeting or lecture is necessary to success in school and at work. We measure ability to follow a conversation and understand spoken information.
