How It Works

The 3 Things You Need To Know

First, we check your English to see what your current skill levels are.

  • You can test one, two, three or all four language skills.
  • The tests are fun - not like exams. You don't need to prepare for them!
  • 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.

Then, we use your Profile and your Test Results to assess how long you need to continue studying English.

We send you your Personal Report by email - within 5 minutes - telling you::

  1. Your current level of ability for each skill; and
  2. How much longer you should study to pass that IELTS or TOEFL or PTE or CEF exam.
  3. What things you should focus on to improve your Speaking and Writing skills.

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 pass that exam. [A full time week is 20 to 25 hours per week in class.]
  3. What you should focus on to improve your Speaking and Writing skills.

Multiple Reports

When you have taken all four Tests, you receive an "Aggregate Report", showing all four of your skills and how much more study you need for each one.

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

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

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

Skill Levels

We measure your English language ability on a 15-point scale.

We align our levels to the Global Scale of English. You can read descriptions of our different levels in the second tab.

The table below shows how our scale maps to GSE and to common Certification scales.
