In January 2019 Linguaskill was launched successfully and the replacement of BULATS will come into effect as of January 2020. Linguaskill is now accepted by more and more important higher education institutions in Switzerland and abroad.
Testing the English language levels of students is an important activity for higher education institutions and pathway providers, whether for admissions, course placement, progress measurement or graduation. Linguaskill helps institutions test candidates easily and reliably and provides them with fast results. Results are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international standard for describing language ability.
Linguaskill is available in two different options:
Linguaskill General: Linguaskill General tests language used in daily life, making it ideal for university admission or exit and recruitment for roles in a non-business specific environment. Test topics include studying and working, making future plans, travel, and technology.
Linguaskill Business: Linguaskill Business tests language used in a corporate setting. It is most suitable for business specific courses or for recruitment in organisations where employees would be expected to be familiar with the language of business. Test topics include the buying and selling of products or services, the office, business travel, and human resources.
Our upcoming webinars and workshops will cover interesting topics such as Mastering Some Language Aspects of the Cambridge Exams, Group Performance Report or the Cambridge Exam Support Programme (CESP). Have a look and find out more!
