Tests and Examinations for English Learners

There is a wide range of tests and examinations designed to measure the English-language competence of people whose mother tongue is not English. The majority of them originate in the United Kingdom or the United States. Many of them focus on the candidate's ability to function in a specific environment, though some are of a more general nature.

  • Academic (typically required by universities and colleges of higher education)
  • Business or Work (typically required by companies)
  • General (for the candidate's personal interest or required by some government or other agencies, for example for immigration purposes)
  • Young Learners (typically for the candidate's personal interest or future career)
