Language Proficiency Exams

Over 20 Years of Experience with Language Proficiency Exams 

Language proficiency exams are generally considered the best way to measure an employee or teaching candidate’s ability to effectively use a language in a professional setting.  Many individuals, both those employed and those seeking employment,  list multi-lingual skills as one of their employment assets.
