Language proficiency tests are preceded by a thorough needs analysis to ensure we test for the specific skills a client requires, and all tests are given in a professional facility by experienced testers.

We measure proficiency using the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) scale, which was developed to measure a person’s ability to communicate in a language. The ILR scale consists of five levels of language proficiency and is the standard language proficiency scale used by the Federal Government.
