Cambridge Assessment English’s cutting-edge English test for corporates, schools and universities and other organisations has been launched in China. Linguaskill is an online English test developed by experts that uses artificial intelligence capabilities to make sure that test content is tailored to a candidate’s individual performance. It also includes a high-tech auto marking feature.
Linguaskill will offer organisations in China a quick and convenient online way of checking the English language levels of individuals and groups of candidates. Experts in Cambridge say the results can be used to help HR professionals in China make important decisions on recruitment, promotion and training. Results can also be used by schools and universities to check English language levels for course placement, progress measurement and graduation. Linguaskill uses the latest cutting-edge artificial intelligence, to provide an accurate assessment of English language skills. Results are available within 48 hours. Results are in line with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), which is the international standard for describing language ability. Since it was launched the test has already been adopted by big names around the world including Air France and by banks across Europe, Russia and Egypt.
Qu Min, Asia Pacific Director at Cambridge Assessment English, explains:
‘Linguaskill provides a really clever way of helping HR professionals recruit people with the English language skills they need for success in the workplace. The test will bring huge benefits to large scale global organisations based in China who rely on employees with good communication skills. We’ve designed the test so it can be used to test English at the point of recruitment, or for existing employees to measure their progress as part of their professional development. The test is also ideal for schools and universities as English is a key skill for student success. Universities can use it to check English language students’ levels at admission, during a course and when they graduate. Linguaskill tests key English language skills needed in line with international standards and is fast becoming a widely-used tool for professionals and education instituions all over the world.’
Linguaskill has been trialled by speakers of over 40 languages from 50 countries to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the results. Two test options will be offered in China, which are Linguaskill General and Linguaskill Business. The test can be administered at any time and at any venue – all that is needed is a computer, an internet connection, a microphone and a set of headphones.
