Why Cambridge English
You are here:
Linguaskill has been developed by our dedicated team of experts. It has been trialled by speakers of over 40 languages from 50 countries to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the results.
It combines the latest technology with the reliability and quality you expect from Cambridge Assessment English.
The Reading and Listening module is adaptive: questions become easier or more difficult depending on an individual’s previous answer. As a result, every candidate receives a unique version of the test tailored to their ability level. This means that the test is suitable for all abilities and offers a personalised experience.

The Writing module uses innovative automarker technology. Candidates input answers using a computer keyboard and their answers are automatically marked by the computer. This video explains how the automarker technology works within the Writing module and how it is as reliable as a human marker.
These materials will help you understand more about the technology behind Linguaskill.
