In such a critical moment as the COVID-19 pandemic, which seemed to dramatically compromise our efficiency in the management of language assessments – traditionally face to face – the LinguaSkill test constituted an immediate, practical, effective and fast tool that allowed students of our University to test the four fundamental language skills (speaking, writing, reading and listening) in the times set for them by the university curricula. The test guaranteed within 48 hours results consistent with the criteria of the Common European Framework of Reference for the Knowledge of Languages, thus compensating – with effectiveness and rigor – the temporary management disorientation that has devastated all the professionals in our field. And the degree of student satisfaction? Very high!
Linguaskill: the new online English test created by Cambridge Assessment English
Linguaskill is an online English test that allows you to quickly assess the English level of candidates, individually or in groups.
The test is available in two versions, Business and General and evaluates all four language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening.
The results are available online in 48 hours in the form of Test Reports aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international standard for describing language skills, and the Cambridge English assessment grid.
Linguaskill was developed by a team of experts from Cambridge Assessment English, the world’s leading institution in the language certification sector, using artificial intelligence. The test has been tested by native speakers of over 40 different languages from 50 different countries – the result is a reliable and accurate test.
Linguaskill for companies
The Linguaskill test allows companies to quickly and effectively assess the language skills of their employees by taking a picture of their level of English.
This tool can also be useful in the personnel recruitment stage to test candidates’ real English skills. Test Reports available online within 48 hours can be individual or group. Group Reports present, in the form of a list, the results of a group of candidates to make it much easier to compare, identify strengths and weaknesses and then make informed decisions.
The Linguaskill test is already very popular in Europe and has been adopted by large companies. For example, Air France chose it to assess the level of English of the employees involved in customer relations and to define the language skills necessary to obtain a promotion.
Linguaskill for universities
Assessing students’ language skills is very important for educational institutions for several reasons: admissions, course assignments, intermediate or final assessments.
Linguaskill is the perfect answer to these needs because it allows universities to assess candidates’ language skills easily and reliably, and it guarantees quick results that can be consulted online 48 hours after the test.
The test can be easily organized anywhere there are computers and an internet connection, in the ways and at the times considered most convenient. Linguaskill allows you to evaluate the language skills of individuals or groups of students, with clear comparative reports of the results obtained.
The test is modular so each university can choose the module it needs, testing only specific skills.
The Linguaskill test is already very popular in Europe and has been adopted by major universities such as the University of Barcelona in Spain.
