How It Works

First, how good is your English now?

We test your English to learn how much longer you need to study.

  • You can test one, two, three or all four language skills.
  • No booking is required.
  • You do all four Tests on your computer, so you don't need to travel anywhere.
  • Each Test takes between 10 and 20 minutes.
  • You don't need to do all the Tests at the same time, but if you do, the four Tests take about 60 minutes.

We use your profile and your Test results to assess how long you need to continue studying English.

We send you your Report by email.  Your Report will tell you TWO important things:

  1. Your current level of ability for each skill; and
  2. How much longer you should study to reach a higher level.

Your Report

Tells you how good you are now AND how long it will take you to reach a higher level.

About Now AND Your Future

Your Report is our formal Assessment of your English Language Skills. It tells you what you need to know:

  1. Your skill levels now.
  2. How many full time weeks of English study you need to reach your goal. [A full time week is 20 to 25 hours per week in class.]

You can print out your Report. Email it to your teacher, your parents, your migration agent, the language school, or your next employer.

Travelling for Study?

Your Personal Report will help you plan how long you should book your Language Course in the country you want to visit. 

The Report will help you:

  • budget for your accommodation and courses
  • get the right visas and plan your future studies

Multiple Reports

When you have taken all four Tests, you receive an "Aggregate Report", showing all four of your skills.

Watch your learning progress: do the Tests every 10 to 12 weeks and monitor your progress. 

Skill Levels

We measure your English language ability on a 15-point scale. The table below shows how our scale maps to other common tests.

We follow the British Council's descriptions of skills levels, with some additional detail. You can read the descriptions in the second tab.
