The English test with fast and accurate results

Linguaskill is a multilevel English test with results in 48 hours. It is done via computer and assesses the level of a candidate, or group of candidates, quickly and accurately.


Linguaskill is a modular online test that evaluates the four language skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking. This gives you the ability to choose which skills you want to test.

Linguaskill is available in two options, General and Business. This gives you the ability to choose the type of language to be tested based on your goals.

Linguaskill General

Linguaskill General evaluates the language used in daily life, making it perfect for university admission or graduation, for job selection processes that take place in a non-business environment. For example, if the employee needs significant knowledge of English to carry out their role effectively but does not require specialized business terminology.

Reading & Listening (Combined)

It is adaptive, so there is no fixed number of questions. Each question the candidate answers helps the system better understand what the candidate’s level is. The test ends when the candidate has answered enough questions for Linguaskill to accurately identify their level.
