Business English Test

In today’s business environment, a lack of English language skills could have a serious impact on an individual's employability and competitiveness. The Business English Test allows you to objectively assess an individual's ability to understand and communicate in English, especially in a business setup. It evaluates your candidate’s English knowledge on 3 levels: reading comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar.
