BERLITZ TESTING

Fast and accurate assessment of language fluency.

In order to effectively test language competence and skills Berlitz offers different options: the Berlitz Online Proficiency Test (BOPT) and the Berlitz Proficiency Interview (BPI). These tests are used to evaluate participant’s language skills – making it possible to effectively improve areas of weakness and to measure progress made, quickly and meaningfully.

The Berlitz Online Proficiency Test is simple to take and available in five languages. The test results are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF) and are sent via email immediately upon test completion. Thus you have a way to test current language skills quickly, clearly and cost effectively – and as the test is based on worldwide standards it provides the ideal basis for comparison. And so the Berlitz Online Proficiency Test is the ideal tool for assessing employees and for focusing their continued language training.
