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.

When can I take the test?

You can take the Linguaskill test on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 7 pm from home, the office or anywhere you want.

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.

Linguaskill

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.

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!

For English levels A1 to C1 + there are two options available:

The Linguaskill test consists of three modules, which collectively assess the four language skills:

The modules can also be purchased individually at the price of € 75.00 each. Candidates who take only one module can decide to take the others within the next 2 months and obtain an overall report.

The cost of the Linguaskill test as a whole, i.e. of the three modules, is € 150.00.

The reviews of the candidates

I would like to congratulate the organization because the test is exactly as expected and the software works perfectly. The video tutorials are very useful and explain very well what we will encounter during the exam, and above all between registration and arrival of the results practically only one week passes, congratulations. I also wanted to thank you for your availability and efficiency in responding to emails and any other problems.

The adaptive software in the listening and reading part allows you to put yourself at ease during the test, without being overly easy / difficult to find questions. Furthermore, the writing organized in this way gives the possibility to express yourself without excessive constraints on the topics or issues to be addressed.

The test is well organized: not too long and immediate delivery of results, which is no small thing. Friendly and helpful assistant staff for any clarification.
