Language Testing International is proud to be the only company licensed to offer proficiency assessments that meet the rigorous standards of the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). No matter what your motivation for wanting a proficiency assessment, you naturally want to be certain that you are getting the most accurate, comprehensive and reliable test available. Since we know that business owners don’t have the time to create such tests, we have created them for you.
Using a proficiency assessment offers you a competitive edge, as you will have real, quantifiable knowledge of your employees’ language capabilities. In today’s job market, being multilingual is a strong asset for any candidate; the down side of this is that not every individual’s claims of fluency in a given language match their actual abilities. Before you make the decision to hire someone or increase their compensation based on their language skills, you want to be certain that their claims on paper match their true capabilities.
With over two decades of experience in the field, we have the necessary data and knowledge to create exams with an unparalleled level of reliability and validity. You can be sure that we are not only testing the abilities that you want measured, but that the test itself is accurate.
Additionally, a good proficiency assessment covers a wide range of topics, because we all know that to be fluent in another language means knowing more than just a few stock words and phrases. Not only do our tests confront the candidate with many topics to assess their knowledge, but we also test the candidate’s cultural knowledge, a factor that is crucial to their ability to function in a given language.
In today’s globalized marketplace, don’t you want to stand out from your competitors? For the very best in language proficiency assessments, look no further than LTI – we’ll provide you with all the assurance you need.
