Key Facts about the Test
- Linguaskill can be easily administered using only a computer, an internet connection, a microphone
and a set of headphones.
- It matches A1 to C1 or above on the CEFR Level.
- It tests Reading and Listening (combined), Writing and Speaking.
The Reading and Listening module is adaptive, so there is not a fixed number of questions. Each question the candidate answers helps the computer to understand their level better. The test finishes when the candidate has answered enough questions for Linguaskill to identify their level accurately. Results for the Reading and Listening module are provided immediately. Reading tasks include multiple choice, gapped sentences, open gap fill, and extensive reading. The listening section contains multiple choice questions on short and long audio recordings.
The Writing module asks candidates to input answers using a computer keyboard. Answers are marked automatically by the computer. Results will be available within 12 hours. It consists of two parts: email writing (15 mins) and response to a scenario, review, article, web post, letter, report, ..etc.
The Speaking module is taken using a computer with a microphone and headphones. Questions are presented to the candidate through the computer screen and headphones, and their responses are recorded and assessed by examiners. Results will be available within 48 hours. It consists of five parts that comprise a variety of tasks such as reading aloud, responding to questions, talking about a given topic, graphics description, and expressing opinion.
