What is Linguaskill?

Linguaskill is the new international test created and developed by Cambridge Assessment English that assesses the level of English of the candidates in a fast and accurate way.

Available in the General and Business versions, Linguaskill evaluates all language skills (speaking, writing, reading and listening) and the results are available online in just 48 hours, reported on a Test Report  in line with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR / CEFR).

What do the two versions of Linguaskill consist of?

Linguaskill is available, for levels A1 to C1 +, in two different versions:

  • Linguaskill General

Designed for assessing general English skills in everyday situations. Among the topics covered in the test we find study and work situations, future plans, technology and travel.

  • Linguaskill Business

This version evaluates the English used in work and business situations and is more oriented to the candidates’ Business English level. Among the topics covered in the test are the purchase and sale of products and services, the office, business trip and human resources.

Linguaskill is for…

Companies

Linguaskill allows companies to quickly and effectively  assess the language skills of employees, verifying their level of English.

It is also possible to receive a Group Report, with the results of an entire group of candidates, that can facilitate the identification of the candidates’ strengths and weaknesses.

Among the large companies that have already chosen to rely on Linguaskill for the assessment of the English level of their employees we find AirFrance, Maserati, KPMG, etc.

Universities

Linguaskill allows universities to assess candidates’ language skills easily and reliably for various reasons: admissions, course assignments, intermediate or final assessments.

The test can be easily organized at any location where computers and an internet connection are available, according to the most convenient methods and timing.

The Linguaskill test has been adopted by major universities such as the University of Barcelona  in Spain.

What is the structure of Linguaskill?

 

Reading and Listening (single module)

Duration: 60/85 minutes

This module tests reading and listening skills and is adaptive: the questions become easier or more difficult based on the answer given to the previous question.

Writing

Duration: 45 minutes

This module tests the written production skills.

Speaking

Duration: 15 minutes

This module tests the speaking skills.

Modules can also be purchased individually. Candidates who take only one module can take the others within the next 2 months and thus obtain a global report.

How is Linguaskill administered?

Language Point is Linguaskill partner n. IT237 and it is possible to take the test at any time at our office, in the presence with an invigilator for its entire duration.

Alternatively, it is also possible to take the exam with Remote Proctoringfrom your office or home. This technology breaks down distances: all you need is a computer with a webcam, headphones with a microphone and a stable internet connection. The safety and reliability of the test is guaranteed by a software that allows you to record and monitor all the examination phases , with the following precautions:

  • registration of the candidate with the webcam for the duration of the test, tracking of body and eye movements
  • audio recording in the room
  • recording of any desktop activity with blocking of computer functions not related to the test
  • monitoring of the candidate’s activity through artificial intelligence software
