Why Cambridge English
You are here:
Linguaskill is simple to use for both agents and candidates, and is administered through the Cambridge English Test Portal. This video shows the five key features of the portal and how to use them.
Windows 7 or later
Apple Macs running MacOS 10.12.6 (Sierra) to 10.15.7 (Catalina) are supported.
Note: The Cambridge English Test portal and any tests run through it are not currently supported on:
2 Mbps per candidate.
The Speaking Test uses HTML5 and so a compatible browser must be used to run the test
Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are compatible and supported browsers.
Microsoft Internet Explorer is not compatible with HTML5 so cannot be used for the Speaking Test.
Google Chrome is compatible and is the supported browser.
A microphone should be attached to the headset, via a ‘boom’ (in other words, on the end of a flexible stalk). The microphone should be noise-cancelling (at a minimum, directional), to increase sound pick-up and to minimise noise pollution on the recordings.
Please do not allow the use of your computers’ built-in microphones, these should be disabled, because they are not of the appropriate type nor of sufficient quality. In addition in Chrome if a candidate mutes their headset mic, Linguaskill will continue recording if there‘s more than one mic enabled on the machine.
